    USB ports changing location


    Hello i have an issue with my Lenovo Ideacentre pc running windows 10. I have a12 port powered hub that is connected to the usb port on the rear of the pc, the problem is that it keeps "forgetting" that it is connected to the hub. When i reconnect to one of the ports on the front of the machine there are 4( 2 x usb 2 and2 xusb 3) it works fine, if i pull the rear usb connection to the hub out and put it back in it will work fine until i shut down then it drops out again. I have 2 printers a flight simulator stereo speakers connected to the hub Not a massive problem but annoying none the less. Any help would be much appreciated. Dave.

    :)

    Click next/OK as required to complete installation. Repeat the steps for all Intel USB devices. Finally click on each USB root device and press DEL to delete it, reply YES when asked. After deleting all USB root devices restart the computer.

    I hope this is detailed enough...

    USB ports

    Hi Frank,

    Inserting and removing a USB device repeatedly may cause the USB port to stop responding. When the port is in this state, it no longer recognizes any USB device, and the USB device will not work.

    Here are few things that you can do to resolve the issue:

    Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes. After your computer scans for hardware changes, it might recognize the USB device that is connected to the USB port so that you can use the device.

    To scan for hardware changes, follow these steps:

    • Click Start, and then click Run.

      Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
    • Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
    • In Device Manager, click your computer so that it is highlighted.
    • Click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
    • Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

    Turn off Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

    • In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers, right-click USB Root Hub, and then click Properties.
    • In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog box, click the Power Management tab. Uncheck the
      Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power
      box.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested troubleshooting steps.
