USB devices die off in 20 min. HELP ?
Got a small problem thought someone here can help before I go crazy.
Im using a Dell latitude c600 to run a lilli, a rikaline 6010 and one of those USB mini keyboards made for playstations. The laptop runs from a modified sine wave inverter. The laptop sits in the trunk along with the inverter. VGA, USB and power cables run from the back to the dash from under the door sill.
The problem: in about 20-30 minutes after starting off, all USB devices starts getting disconnected/connected/disconnected....
Know that noise XP makes when you plug in and out any USB device? well it keeps making that noise as if someones sitting there and pulling out the USB cord randomly.
The laptop does get pretty hot, but the fan does come on, so I feel that should not be the issue though it would explain why it waits 20-30 min to start acting up ..
I have even tried a PCMCIA USB card to make sure the USB port on my laptop wasnt defective. same problem...
Any Help/suggestion is welcome.
