Unplugging USB's causes computer to break

Q: Unplugging USB's causes computer to break

So this bug seems to only happen about 50% of the time when I unplug USB devices from my computer. When I play certain games I have to unplug my racing wheel and flight sticks and doing so sometimes causes my computer to start beeping and stuttering. The beeping and stuttering only happens when I either move the mouse or click a button on the mouse so I am wondering if it's got something to do with the mouse but I've had the mouse for a while and have only encountered this bug fairly recently. Anyone heard of this before? Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Preferred Solution: Unplugging USB's causes computer to break

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have the Hyperx Cloud and the microphone easily unplugs from the headphones so that you can choose to not have a mic some times. While I was talking with my friends on skype and needed to mute the mic quickly so I just pulled out the microphone and when i plugged it back in it didn't work. I have googled many solutions but nothing seems to work.

A:Simply unplugging my headphones and plugging them back in seemed to break them. HELP!

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

How can I interchange the key shortcuts for inserting a line break with paragraph break one?

They are currently inserted by pressing Shift+Enter and Enter respectively. I would like to reverse that assignation.

I would like to get a new paragraph break when pressing Shift+Enter, and a new line break when pressing Enter.

The reason is because is much more common to insert new line paragraphs and it's more comfortable to use a single key.

How can I do it?
I've tried in Options -> Customize Ribbon -> Customize Keyboard Shortcuts -> but I Can't find the related functions there.

Im guessing that is not good. My wife unplugged the computer during a download after it froze and now it takes 45 minutes just to reboot. Once it's up, it might take an hour just to open the control panel.

If it does open up, it will then freeze.

Yesterday, I was on my computer, when I decided to unplug a USB connection to my printer off from a USB port at the top of my PC. Upon doing so, my monitor went blank, and I think I heard the fan levels increase. My keyboard lit up all of the lights, which only ever happens while the computer is booting up.

I waited for a while for the display to return, but nothing happened, so I attempted to manually shut it off by holding the power button down. Nothing happened. I managed to unplug the cord, to turn off the PC. Upon plugging it back in, the PC would not start.

So far, I have concluded that, the power socket and the cable both are fine. The GPU LED light is also not on. I checked the connections to the motherboard from the power supply and they seemed all in place. I also ran the 'paperclip' test on the Power Supply, which worked. I moved the RAM sticks to different slots, and even took out the memory, but didn't hear any sounds or notice any power.

Interestingly, the LED power light on the case seems to occasionally work. Hoping that the issue is not the motherboard.

Motherboard: MSI Z97 G55 SLI

All help is appreciated. Thanks

I have had trouble shutting down a computer I am building. It goes through the motions then says its okay to turn off your computer now. All the fans are still running and I assume by the okay to turn off your computer now message which has a windows logo on it, the HD is still spinning. Hitting the power buttons just causes the computer to restart. There is no way to shut this computer down.

If I am unable to resolve this issue, how bad is it to turn off the computer by unplugging it? What I would really be doing is adding a power strip with an on/off button to shut the computer down.

I recently unplugged my computer from the wall (actually, I unplugged the surge protected power strip from the wall) because I was doing some electrical work and didn't want my computer to see a surge in case I made any mistakes. When I plugged the computer back in, I began to see strange behavior. There seem to be "artifacts", for lack of a better word since I'm not overclocking anything, during startup and after booting. The text is all messed up, showing the wrong letters and symbols, and the asus screen is screwed up too. After booting, there are discolorations and severe misalignments, and the monitor going black and coming back repeatedly. I tried resetting the power strip, plugging the power directly into the wall, and cleaning out the dust in the box.

The problem comes and goes, sometime more sever than others and sometimes all is OK, and I can't figure out what is causing it. All temps are OK (GPU is 42 idle, CPU is 29). Specs are as follows:
Mobo: Asus A8N-SLI
CPU: AMD 3700 San Diego
PSU: Antec Truepower 2.0 550
Mem: 2x512 Corsair XMS
1 DVD drive, 4 hard drives, stock cooling (with 1 extra hard drive fan)
Old Gateway CRT monitor (using DVI-Analog adapter)
No overclocking on CPU or GPU

Right now everything is fine and the Asus PC Probe shows the following voltages, pretty much rock solid :
+12 : 11.84
+5 : 4.945
+3.3 : 3.296
V Core : 1.392

A:Computer shuts down after unplugging headphones

There isn't an option within Windows (that I'm aware of) to shut down when headphones are removed. So I would suspect it's a hardware fault.

Does the same occur if you connect the headphones to the rear audio port?

Hi, I notice that when my computer is in sleep mode, I can unplug the external hard drive and the computer will power on again. I never had this issue with Windows 7. Right now I have Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.

I hope this is the right forum, I appologise if it's not and would welcome any suggestions about where else I might look for help.

I'll start by quoting my OP from another forum:

So I just picked up a new SATA hard drive and installed it in my computer. To do so I shut down my machine, unplugged everything, plugged the 2nd HDD into the power supply and motherboard leaving the original HDD as is, replugged everything, and switched on my machine. Then at startup it became unresponsive. The screen just has the big Dell logo, "Dell DXP051 Series", and down the bottom a status bar paused at 'BIOS Revision A07'. I can't enter BIOS settings or anything like that.

So after nothing happened for a few minutes I switched the computer off, opened it up, and unplugged the new HDD from the motherboard, power up again, and the machine just goes straight to the same page. Repeat the process plugging the new HDD in place of the old one and the exact same thing happens.

FWIW, I'm 90% sure the startup process usually has a screen or two before the one I'm stuck at, but when I switch on my machine it just goes straight to it, so there's no option to enter BIOS settings or anything like that. Also, on the front panel of my computer there are two backlit lights on '1' and '4'. I have no idea what they are, I'd never noticed them before. '2' and '3' light up and alternate when I first power on, but ... Read more

I have an all-one computer (Not a laptop) supposedly energy star efficient. I actually done a test but I don't know if it is the computer or the modem/router combo. The computer received power while it was off, the router was always on. I changed that, the computer and the modem/router combo is now totally unplugged so I saved $40.00 off of our electric bill.

I use surge protectors on both my computers and modems/router.
When I turn off the computers I also turn off the surge protectors which turns off everything including my router and modem.

Everything that hooks to my computers are hooked to the surge protectors;
speakers, printers, ect. So everything is turned off. (No power)

You can also use this method for a T.V.
When a T.V. is off it isn't really off, it's in kind of in standby mode using electricity.

Hi All! Been a while since I've posted, but sitting here reading other's posts, I almost forgot why I logged in!

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.
I have to admit, I am stumped! Any ideas? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciat... Read more

I have a very old computer that has been collecting dust for a while. I decided to use it as a dedicated ssh server for accessing sensitive information on the road as well as storing it. Here are the stats (hold the applause):128 mb ram500 Mhz processing speed7 gb hddI don't want to sink any more money into this piece than necessary so beyond an 80gb+ hard drive I doubt I will have money for anything else. Which makes me wonder if the only operating system discs I have are XP pro and Vista business, will the low memory and slow processor break the machine? I mean I can replace memory if that fries but beyond that I don't want to spend more loot. I just don't want the thing to burn my house down. So, can I get away with running xp on 128 ram and 500 Mhz?

A:Will I Break My Old Computer?

Technically yes you can do this. Your CPU must be at least 300MHz, yours is. You need at least 128MB of RAM, you do, and you will need at least 1.5GB of free space on you hdd, and you do. It will work, but you will be able to go brew a cup of coffee while you are waiting for applications to respond.

I started with this:

CPU - Intel Core i7 960
Video Card - ATI Radeon 5870
MOBO - Alienware 0H869M
Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
BIOS- a11 (Dell / Alienware current BIOS)

Ended up overclocking the CPU to 3.9 using someone elses #'s for that CPU. It ran everything with stable temps for about 30min, then I decided to go buy a GPU (970gtx)..so I went and got that, came back, installed it, turned on PC. Booted really slow. I get one beep at startup, it continues to boot and all that jazz though. We're just talking back to the stone age status..2-3minutes to boot up windows.. Decided the Overclock was making it boot slow so I opened up BIOS and f9'd back to default settings. Forgot to remove old video drivers so had an awkward time getting those off (used amdcleanutility) and then got my new evga drivers.

I went from 250fps in Counter-Strike:Global Offensive to like 150fps. My computer boots up stupid slow now and it seems like every time I restart my monitors switch off on which one comes up showing the bios loading screen first and then the other one finally cuts on when windows is loading.

A:Break down between computer and monitor

Hello Mich,

In order to assist you further, please help me understand few details about the issue.
-- What is the color of the power LED of the tower (desktop) and the monitor when you get the black screen?
-- Is it a complete black screen or do you get any error message?
-- Were there any recent hardware or software changes?
-- What are the external peripherals connected to the computer?

I would suggest couple of things that can be tried whenever you get a black screen.
1. Disconnect all the external peripherals and try to restart the computer.
2. Run the Pre-Boot SystemAssessment (PSA / ePSA) Diagnostics. This would prove the functionality of the hardware components of the computer. Run the test and check if gives any error code. Note down the error code and update me with the same, would let you know the next course of action.

Please write back with the details, would be glad to assist you further.

Hello, I'd like to start by saying I ave searched everywhere for a solution to this problem and I've had no luck. I am also quite inexperienced with most of the tools you may ask me to use, such as hijackthis. I've only had a few viruses on this computer during its lifetime and I've always been able to clean them off with malwarebytes or other programs and I even borrow friends' computers and fix them whenever they need. Anyway, I'll get to my problem. My graphics driver sometimes shakes loose inside of my computer, that's no problem except sometimes I have to tighten it back in. Sometimes I will turn on my pc and the screen wont load, telling me it is loose, forcing me to turn off the computer by holding the power button. Well a few days ago I did this, and I pressed "start my computer normally" when the screen appeared, but for some reason, a CHKDSK ran. I didn't have time to stop it and I did not want to turn off my pc while it ran. However, it started saying all kinds of my files were corrupt and it was deleting them and replacing some with defaults. I was like "hmm, ok, it's never done this before, maybe this is a good thing." However, when my desktop came up, the problem it caused was very apparent. There is so much to explain, I will get as much on here as I can.

Greetings,Making sure your graphics is securely seated should be the first thing. Power down your computer, unplug everything connected to it and make sure the card will not become loose anymore. If for some reason you can not keep the graphics card screwed in buy a new case.Next, Download Cleanup. An CCleaner. Install & run both programs. **Do not use registry cleaner.Next, open a command prompt by searching for cmd from the start menu. Right click and select Run as Administrator. Type the following..chkdsk /r c:Press Y to accept the disk check on next reboot.** Allow the disk check to complete. It may take up to an hour.Let me know how it goes.

When I leave my laptop and return after half an hour or so, the system is very slow and laggy. When I click it takes a second to respond and when I type the characters are appearing 1 second after another. Everything is in slowmotion. After a minute or so the system starts to work full speed again. Things I noticed: -The system didn't go in sleep or hybernate-CPU is not high at all (about 3%)- There is no hard drive activity.- Lately I discovered that when I click on the Windows start menu, the system is fast again. I suspect that the CPU is in some extreme low power mode and does not pick up speed fast enough.  Hopefully somebody can help me solve this, because it is very annoying. Thanks!

We are using Word 2003 SP2, running on on WinXP version 2002 SP2.
to briefly illustrate our problem:

Say I have four Word files, called B, C, D and E. Each file is three-to-five pages long, and each file ends with a Next page section break, created by dropping down the Insert menu and selecting Break... > Next page. Remember that - each of the four files ends with a Section Break (Next Page).

I create a fifth file, called A, which is a composite of files B through E inserted as links (because I want to be able to update files B through E and then pull those changes into file A). My new and blank file A is open, and I drop down the Insert menu, select File, and navigate to the file called B. I press the Insert button at the lower-right of the Insert File window and select Insert as Link. I repeat this process for files C, D and E so that, when I finish, file A is made up of files B through E, each inserted as link.

When I review file A and scroll from top to bottom, I notice that file D's text does not begin at the top of the page following the end of file C's text, as you would expect with a Section Break (Next Page) inserted at the end of file C, but rather the Section Break (Next Page) has somehow turned into a Section Break (Continue) during the linking process to file A, and so file D's text begins on the same page and a line or two below the end of file C's text. This is bad.

Can someone tell me how I can prevent my Section Break (Next Page) f... Read more

I am really frustrated at the moment, I can't seem to get away from this problem I keep having. Last august I build my super computer. It worked fine, for the most part until this summer when I decided to take it apart and figure out some problems I was having, I ended up reloaded windows on it and starting fresh. I currently use the Logitech bluetooth keyboard as my main keyboard. The keyboard worked fine with the supplied bluetooth dongle, however a few months ago I noticed it was slugglish and eventually it stopped working so I then used a cheap bluetooth dongle I got for like a dollar. This worked fine with my keyboard until about a month or two ago when the keyboard stopped working. At first I thought it was the keyboard but after a restart it would work fine. Eventually, I decided to remove the device and re add it. When I did this, my computer went to the BSOD with the error message IRQ Driver something, I am sorry i didn't write it down but I can get it if necessary.

I rebooted my computer but it would not come out of this and would immediately go to the BSOD right after the windows flag appeared. So then in safe mood I tried to restore the system to what it was before I installed the bluetooth, and this eventually worked. So then I went back and tried to add a device again and again BSOD but only this time system restore did not work and after many frustrating hours I decided to just reload windows again. I also purchased a ASUS USB bluetooth ... Read more

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32. To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\M... Read more

I wonder what'd happen if I unplug the desktop tower cord from the power surge or electric outlet? Will I lose what I have in tower? I unplugged the desktop monitor cord from the power surge several times and nothing was lost, but I am not sure about the tower cord. The reason is because I need to move the table around in the room and need to unplug the cords. I am sure nothing will be lost if unplugging tower cord from the power surge or outlet because the table needs to be moved around in the room, something else like moving out of the house, etc if you know what I mean.

Also, what would happen if unplugging the cords from the desktop monitor and tower themselves, not from power surge/outlet? Would everything be lost? Much thanks.

A:Unplugging cords

Save everything, then turn everything off, using the approved procedure and then you can unplug.
As always, your important stuff should always be backed up. An unexpected improper shut down, and stuff can be lost.
Stuff can be lost for other reasons, too.

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

I've recently acquired a digital camera, and have been testing snaps then putting them into the PC for editing. When I remove the lead, I get the "Unsafe Removal Of Device" window pop up warning me about not stopping the device properly. Now this has never caused me any issues when unplugging any USB hardware.

So my question is, can the warning be disabled totally? Every time I unplug the camera the window pops up and wants to place its icon in the system tray. It's starting to get on my nerves!

Thanks in advance

Alan,This problem can occur because of a logic error in the code for the Usbhub.sys file. Leave it plugged in so that when you download the latest service pack from Microsoft it will be picked up, and the proper SP will be downloaded. Have a good day.

So recently, my Y40-80 started to shut down immediately after i unplug the power source. At first, i figured it's due to my battery, so i got a new one and got rid of the old one. But the problem still exists. I've called in to Lenovo support and they said my warranty doesn't cover this, so it'll be due to charge, which i think is ridiculous since if it's a hardware failure, i do not see why i should be charged just because i don't have the original battery. Anyways, i've tried reformatting and that did not work. Anyone out there could help me please? Appreciate it!

A:Y40-80 shuts down upon unplugging

Hi rx24race , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Would the new battery be a direct purchase from Lenovo or declared genuine replacement Lenovo battery ?
Within the warranty coverage would be the original parts that came with the machine.
As you mentioned that with a new battery you are still having the same issue but since this would be a charging issue , it is yet to be investigated if it was the systemboard or battery itself is the fault. 
Option that I suggest is to have it taken perhaps to service provider like best buy that can check with a certified compatible battery and have them assist you on having it serviced or to call in directly using the same case number you were provided.
Update us on how it would work best for your situattion.

If I unplug the fan, will my card/system be ok?

A:Unplugging the fan on a GeForce FX 5200

Not a good idea.

If it has a fan it probably means it produces a lot of heat. The heatsink alone might be okay if you don't do anything GPU intensive, but you'll probably encounter overheating problems during gaming.

Hi all, I've been having this weird problem and this site looked like a good place to ask about it because of the support I've seen. So wooooo first post~!
Anyway, whenever I unplug one certain flash drive (a Kingston DataTraveller SE9) my laptop bluescreens with the error "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". I can't figure out why for the life of me! I did, however, figure out that the flash drive is recognized as a local disk and not a removable one. This issue only applies to my laptop, that's it; the drive works perfectly fine on any other computer. I can still read and write to it no problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unplugging Certain USB Drive Causes BSOD

Some USB flash drives act like a hard drive which Windows lists as local disk instead of removable. You will notice that when you delete anything on the USB drive labeled local the deleted items go to the recycle bin. On a USB flash drive labeled removable the items are not sent to the recycle bin.
Download USBdeview. Run the program Highlight any listing for Kingston DataTravler and press the red X to remove. Reboot the computer and attach the Kingston again. Do you get the error?
