Plugging and Unplugging!

Q: Plugging and Unplugging!

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?

Preferred Solution: Plugging and 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.)

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.

Hi everyone, hope this is a good year for all. I just picked up a new computer running xp. It came without a floppy drive, so I picked up a portable external usb floppy drive. Is it ok to plug in, and unplug the floppy to the usb port with the computer on? Thanks for the tips/advice.

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?
 

A:Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, cou÷d've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hi all,

Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

I tried the following and no luck:

Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

My sound card drivers are: Realtek 6.0.1.5969

Anyone has another idea?

Thanks.

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
 
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
 
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
 
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
 
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
 
6) Look for a bios update.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

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

Hi DNGUYEN2252,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

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.

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?

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!

Thanks,

A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

Hope this is some help... Raybro

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

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.

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.

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

Don't have a router and want to use the modem with an Xbox. Should I shut down the computer before removing the modem cable and before plugging it back in when I'm done with the Xbox?

Thanks.

You don't have to, but it might not pick up the network when you replug the computer back in.

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
 

A:Unplugging USB Devices

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.

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.

SPECS:
Motherboard: MSI Z97 G55 SLI
POWER SUPPLY
Cosair CX650

All help is appreciated. Thanks

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.

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.

Dell optiplex with xp prof.

it was running fine until the unplugging part.

any ideas?

Thanks

Stop: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The Session Manager Initialization system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000189 (0x00000000 0x00000000) The system has been shut down.

That was the first time i got any message. I have a systemax computer and am on windows xp sp3, but after a friend came in from out of town to visit, i noticed him on my pc and thought nothing of it. Then when i would use it, it would just cut OFF as if the power source was being removed, not the actual shutdown process. But i would be able to cut it back on, however, usually right after logging in or as i try to open a program, it cuts off again. I kept cutting it back on and tried a program from microcenter called 'system mechanic'. it said i had 95 registry errors and it fixed everything....or so i thought. I used my pc again happily for a whole 2 hours then, it cut off again. then I couldnt get it back on. when i tried it gave me the above message. It wouldnt even start in safe mode. I thought i ruined my pc, but then i remembered that when i leave it alone until after midnight, it comes back on.... i left it alone until 6 am this morning, and i insalled a fix it program from MS, i just want to make sure this will actually fix the problem and want to know what caused it, what does that mean? This guy became very upset with me and did a lot of petty things b4 i put him out like unplug my mouse, keyboard, and speakers from pc and broke my ac! and more. Plus i know he is a p... Read more

Strange. Won't let me post under Networking but here is my question ...

Is there any harm in unplugging a wireless router every night?
 

A:Unplugging Router Harmful?

No harm at all.

But the best is to enable WPA2 or WPA encryption and use a long complicated key. And if you want to be real secure, change that key every other month.

Hello, I will be out of the country for about 12 days and I am thinking I should unplug my laptop (switch the powerstrip to OFF) while I'm away just to be on the safe side. I want to do this for peace of mind since I will be so far away. I have an old laptop that is running on 3 cylinders.

Upon return, will I be experiencing difficulty turning my computer back on? BTW, I am with CenturyLink Wireless.

I've not done this before as I've not been gone that long.

Thank you very much.

Game runs fine when charger is connected but poor performance when not.To disable some obvious power saver functions probably causing the issue, I set battery mode to 'High Performance'.Also I have instead of auto, selected to use Nvidia graphics instead of Intel of course.Don't really know what power saver options I'm missing to disable.

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

Is this a good idea? My fan is making all kinds of noise, I have already bought a replacement card from newegg.com, so the issue is only valid for a few days.

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.

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
