  1. USB Ports giving power but no data connection.


    Hi,


    For a while now I have had an issue with only the USB 3.0 ports at the back of my pc only provide power but no data connection. The ports seem to be fine, as I was able to make a bootable linux usb and run it fine on each of the ports. I have tried to update my drivers, uninstall them etc, nothing I have tried seems to be working. I have yet to reinstall windows as this is a last option for me

    :)

    Power Surge on the USB port?

    Hi Bob,

    When a user tried uninstalling the USB drivers, it usually installs itself again when the computer restarts. It is a fact that most of the Mouse and Keyboard nowadays are connected using USB connection instead of their traditional PS/2 port. We suggest that
    you visit the link provided and follow the steps provided:
    USB has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of it's hub Port , you should disconnect the device


    Kindly let us know if you need further assistance.

    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.

    USB Port Issue - Power Surge on Hub Port


    I have no Idea, what i suggested you check is the USB ports on your computer ensure you didn't damage them. The Hub you smoked is smoked get rid of it.
    You new Hub is it self-powered? if not you probably don't have enough power going to the hub to support many devices. The flash drive plug it into a port on your computer if it works then its ok and the issue is the hub. If not you can try to run chk disk on it maybe you can fix it.
