Re: USB Malfunction-No USB in use


[re: smc] [link to this post]
 
Not exactly relevant but I've had three usb SDHC card readers fail during the last couple of years with Win7. However I have been transferring several GB's of HD video clips from 4GB and 8GB SDHC cards.

When the those usb devices failed I got the same notification from Win7 that you’ve been getting frown

My card reader is working so not sure it is the one causing the pop up.

Have you tried upgrading the motherboard's firmware and/or installing the manufacturer's drivers. Microsoft's drivers do not always work correctly.


What is best way to find out which motherboard it is?

It would be better to go to the motherboard manufacturer's website.

Have you tried taking said card reader out and see if said notification goes away?

Have you properly inspected the USB ports for damaged prongs or are you assuming they are OK?

Yep I have inspected the USB ports.

I am not taking card reader out as not going to dismantle laptop. As I said the card reader is working ok so I really doubt it has anything to do with the problem.

I have had a look but cannot find motherboard firmware updates/drivers from manufacturer, seems a bit odd that they don't.
