Forgot to shut down USB device before unplugging

Q: Forgot to shut down USB device before unplugging

Running an HP Pavillion slimline S5123W. My daughter accidently removed a USB device without using the USB shut down promt. Now the computer gives an HP blue screen with the F10,ESC (Boot Menu),F9 and F11 prompts (that don't work when chosen, except F10 and only very slowly sometimes) which goes to another black screen saying Warning USB device over current detected Please remove over current USB device. System will shut down in 20 seconds. Even though there is not a USB device in USB slot. We have rebooted, done a cold boot (with complete unplug) and still the same thing. Will it be necessary to remove the USB slot or disconnect? If so, how do I do that? What can we do to be able to use the computer again? Right now it is off and unplugged.

Thanks, Alabamasweet

Preferred Solution: Forgot to shut down USB device before unplugging

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.)

Try going into Device Manager...then deleting the USB controllers only (not hubs, not devices). Then reboot.

Hi, I have a laptop with vista installed. At home I usually plug a speaker in via the USB port and that works just great. When I unplug it to go out, however, I notice that sometimes the sound function on my laptop would go out, with a little red x over the sound icon in the systems tray complaining "No audio output device is installed". In sound under control panel, nothing would be listed under the playback tab.

In the past, this problem goes away when I plug the USB speakers back in and restart. However, this time I think my USB ports are malfunctioning, and no USB device I'm plugging in is recognized. While that is a separate problem, the fact that I have no sound now on my laptop is really becoming quite an issue.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Cookie7898 and welcome to the forums

This could be because you are not removing the device safely. Check the icons on the bottom right of the taskbar. You are looking for the icon that looks like the one highlighted in red. If this symbol is not showing, click on the left-pointing arrow on the left (shown here as right-pointing because all the symbols are showing) to expand this group to show all symbols.

Left click on this and from the pop-up select the device by left clicking on it. Wait until the following message is displayed.

Click 'OK' and then remove the device.

This is a strange problem. I have a linksys g wireless adapter plugged into the usb. Recently comcast installed cable internet and I have an ethernet connection now and wanted to move wireless adapter to another computer...When I unplug the adapter the monitor shuts off and the computer seems to want to go to sleep mode. If I plug it back in, it runs perfectly fine. I have tried a ton of different stuff but still I get this problem. Running computer in safe mode does not cause this problem while the adapter is unplugged however.

I searched high and dry on the internet and really could not find another person with the same problem. I have a lot of knowledge with computers and hardware but never have I been baffled like this. I have tried everything from deleting the device in device manager to a system restore to previous date. No matter what I have tried my computer has an dependency of sorts on this wireless card! Any ideas?

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!

Hi,

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.

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.
 
Regards

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.

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

Hi,
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
GPU: EVGA 7800 GT
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 :

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?

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.

When I close the lid of my computer, it makes the alert noise as if you unplugged a device. When I open the lid, it makes the alert noise as if you plugged in a new device. The screen takes a few seconds to turn on, and all of my windows which were open will be resized, and all of my desktop icons are rearranged.Happens every time I open or close the lid, and it's been about a week now.About two months ago, I actually sent this in to Lenovo for some repair from a drop, and they replaced just some plastic parts of the shell and the keyboard. It worked fine when I got it back, and once the screen is on, it continues to work fine. I'm mentioning this because I don't think the screen is becoming physically unplugged, it looks like it is in top shape after the repairs. Any thoughts?-Matt

Hi, I have been using my laptop with windows 7 installed for a while. Whenever I unplug my USB mouse, I receive a blue screen and windows says that it will restart.

I have the dump file, and I can attach it to this post.

Thanks for everyone's help.

It's the weirdest thing.. If I disconnect the ethernet plug from the computer, it will blue screen. Every time.

Based on the blue screen info and the searches I have done on the error, it seems there is something wrong with the Nvidia drivers? I have went to every resource I could to make sure all drivers are up to date.. but nothing seems to be working.

I have been trying to troubleshoot this for a while.. but I kept giving up. I am turning to the fourms for help since I can come up with no solution.

Here are the computer specs - required files are attached. Please let me know if I need to provide anything else. Thanks in advance!

Specs
- Installed: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- Originally: Windows Vista 64-bit
- Windows Vista came on the system, but it came with free Windows 7 upgrade discs, so it was upgraded.

- System is just over 2 years old
- Windows 7 installed just over a year ago

Hello,

I have a PC which is having a lot of trouble recognizing a USB data acquisition device. Starting from a situation where the PC *does* recognize the device, here is the basic pattern:

1. PC shows device in Device Manager under "Data Acquisition Devices".

2. If the PC is power-cycled via the power plug itself, the device is no longer recognized under Device Manager ("Unknown Device").

3. If the PC is power-cycled via Start Menu --> Turn Off, same results as above, no longer recognized.

4. If the PC is power-cycled via Start Menu --> Restart, no problems, device recognized.

When the device is not recognized, unplugging and replugging the USB cable makes no difference to the situation. In order to correct the issue, I disable and then enable via Device Manager (which also involves a restart).

This pattern is extremely repeatable.

I am working with WinXP SP2, Pentium, 2.8 GHz, 504 MB RAM.

This PC was returned from a customer site - the PC and USB device are used in a machine my company manufactures. Apparently this issue just started happening one day. We want not only to correct the issue, but in fact to understand the root cause and ensure it will not happen again in the future.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
 

A:USB Device Recognized / Not Recognized based on shut-down method

You could try reinstalling the usb drivers.
JohnWill has fix that is worth a try

Johnwill's solution

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"
-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

Equipment: Using Compaq Presario 6027US; Pentium 4; Windows XP SP3; 768 MB RAM; 74.5 GB HD.

Problem: Plugging ANY USB2 Device (which works on other computers) into ANY of the 6 USB Ports (2 front, 4 rear) cause Blue Screen warning of shut-down to prevent damage.

Under Technical Information on Blue Screen, find following (which I hope means something to someone!)
*** STOP 0X0000007E (OXCOOOOOO5, OXF7B228E8, OXFB227EC, OXF7B224E8)

So long as NO USB devices are used, computer seems fine. Is there a solution? Pls keep it simple. THANKS!!
 

A:ANY USB Device Causes Blue "Shut Down" Screen

The 1st thing to do is acess BIOS and see if BIOS has a hardware monitor. If it does check the voltage on the +5v rail.

I just got a dell inspiron with windows vista home premium 64bit on it. I'm finding that when i unplug my usb mouse i get a blue screen/memory dump followed by shuting down. I saw some similair threads on the forum when looking for an answer, and the answer i found was to use the 'unplug device' icon in the bottom right corner. But the problem i have with this, is there is no icon there, i click the arrow to see the rest and still not there. Do i need to turn off my laptop everytime before unplugging mouse, or did i miss something? If further information is needed just let me know

A:blue screen when unplugging usb mouse

I have fixed this on my laptop doing the same as I posted on the dell website: Studio 14z: BSOD whenever i unplug USB - DELL COMMUNITY
Uninstall windows updates with the following Knowledge Base numbers (I haven't figured out which one is doing it quite yet)

KB972036

restart the computer, log in and test.

Good luck!

Running W7 HP on an old home built pc with an Intel mobo (D845BG). 2g ram.
Great running hardware for XP. No boot delay in XP.
Upgraded flawlessly to 7; runs fine. No problems at all with OS.

Two 80g Maxtors, cable select, first ribbon position each on primary (the boot drive) & secondary channels. DVD drive & CD drive, cable select, second ribbon positions.

Upon bootup, real quick to the "Starting Windows" with the swirly stuff. Then suddenly, the red light goes off and the bootup stalls for one full minute. It then resumes on it's way to the desktop.

Performed a boot, with logging, and did a printout. Then I booted in Safe Mode to see where the stall is. Rips along until CLASSPNP.SYS shows. Then the 1 minute, then it continues. The driver that loads after CLASS... is cdrom.sys. It loads successfully after the 1 minute delay.

I figure one of the optical drives may be dodgy, so I unplug the power to both to see if the problem goes away. Now the pc won't boot at all - boot failure error. Curious!
Wondering if pinning the 4 pieces master & slave may help?

A:PC won't boot after unplugging the optical drives.

It might pay you to check your boot settings in the system BIOS.

If necessary, change the first boot device to your hard drive, and then see what happens when you reboot.

Hi, I recently installed Windows 10 and have been experiencing frequent BSOD ever since. I get them when I put my computer on sleep when I leave my desk or when it goes to sleep automatically. It was also happening when I unplug my USB splitter (which was not a problem in Windows 7). I can avoid the USB problem by unplugging devices one by one, but the other issue is a real problem.

I also have an SD card and almost always use an additional monitor (with the latest drivers), if that's helpful.

Thanks

Hope someone can help, and if this is a really daft idea that will never work please get it deleted before someone I know reads it!! As you will discover I know nothing at all about broadband and next to nothing about computers...

We can't get broadband yet in our area, but it will be available in a couple of months and we hope to get it then. I've read quite a bit about the security implications of the computer being always connected to the internet with broadband, and wondered whether a way round this would be to unplug it or whatever when we aren't using it. Is this possible, and are there any drawbacks please??

At the moment I run Norton Antivirus, AdAware SE Plus, Spybot S+D, Spyware Blaster and CCleaner and update them religiously - any others that would be worth adding to that list while I've got your attention please?

Thanks in advance, Moose.
 

A:unplugging broadband as a security measure?

When you get it, get Zone Alarm

Basically it just gives a BSOD every time i unplug the usb.

I have the latest beta drivers downloaded from windows update.

I have a wired control and the xplorer guitar (gh2), both works perfectly, the only trouble is when i unplug.

The BSOD indicates something like irql less or equal 0x000000a

Help please,

BTW i cant upgrade the driver because it gives the BSOD when disabling it to do the upgrade

Maybe you have to use the tray icon for removing devices safely, before you can physically unplug it? Did you try that?

Or reboot with it removed, then update the driver.

Hey all. Sorry if this question has really obvious solution but I've been bashing my head against this for a few hours this afternoon and am getting nowhere.

I have downloaded the Win7 RC1 ISO and "burnt" it onto a 16GB OCZ Throttle eSATA / USB drive (exactly as in the SevenForums tutorial). I can boot from this drive and install Windows with no problem.

But... I believe the 200MB system partition is somehow being placed on the flash drive, because once I disconnect it and attempt to boot, I get the standard "DISK BOOT FAILURE..." message.

I've followed the suggestions on the "How to avoid 200MB hidden system partition" page (i.e., pre-create the desired partitions on the installation drive rather than installing to unallocated space), but I'm still getting the problem.

The "Windows might create additional partitions..." dialog box popped up once, on my first installation attempt - and I did foolishly click "OK" to it. It hasn't appeared since for me to click "Cancel" to, however much I try deleting and remaking partitions

Has anything changed in RC1 regarding the system partition? Is it more persistent in creating it than it was with the Beta? If anyone could give me some tips I would be very grateful indeed Thanks!

A:No boot after unplugging setup drive

The 100MB partition is for Repair purposes and should automatically be a part of the installation hard disk (even though it's an alltogether seperate partition).

You may want to check to see what disk the partition has been assigned to, run Computer Management from the start menu search box. See the screenshot and you'll notice that each disk is broken up into partitions (see highlight for Disk 0).

As for changing this option i'll look more closely into it for you

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?
