    Thumbs down USB trouble

    Probably posting in the wrong forum. I've a annoying problem! Randomly my USB mouse or keyboard stop working. If I then unplug the USB cable and put it in again it will work but as I said it's annoying. I've tried to update the driver and get new one for the mouse but still the same problem appears. Anyone have a solution to this? And yes I've used the but not find anything simular.

    Check whether any power saving options are powering down your USB ports

    Yep I'd say wrong forum... but...

    Also what devices do you have in it ? I have had to unplug my remote again because I was draining too much over the USB ... simular probs.

    Check your distance as well on your USB cabling, similar to what CCSNet is saying that it will drain voltages. After 15 feet things start to drop, I have a USB GPS and Touchscreen at 17 feet that work fine. If I add my USB mouse it will not work, but all three will work at 10 feet when I tested them. So you will just have to test it for yourself and see what the sum of all your voltage requirments are for your components.
