USB devices stop after running windows update.
Posted on 2007-07-31
I have a ze4400 pavillion laptop with usb2.0/ieee1394 combo cardbus pcmcia adapter. To that i have connected a wireless usb card wn320g and an external harddrive. Laptop was not very stable and crashes once in a while. So i decided to run windows update after a very long time. There were 80 of them. After they were installed my usb devices wouldnt stay on. After working for a few minutes, they would disconnect. If i unplug them and plug them back in, nothing would happen. I either have to wait for a very long time (and that dont always work) or shut down before plugging them back. I think this started to happen after 60th update. I am not sure.
Could this be a coincidence and its time to get a new computer (which is what i want to do anyways) or there is an update that caused that? Which update could it be and how could i remove it?
