I need more USB ports with the laptop at home like most do. I have tried a couple of usb powered 4 or 7 port name brand units and always get failures and that they do not recognize or only see it as able to go USB 1,1. I need to use some external things that probably need more than the 100mA that the the laptop will provide. I just got a 7port but it has its own wall plug and supposed to have overpower protection built in . but I wanted to know about burning up the smaller things such as the tiny receiver for the wireless mouse or even the smaller draw ext wifi adapter. I do not want to fry these things and the way I have the stuff spread out I will have to mix some which definitely need a powered usb hub with ones which function well when I do not have it plugged in. My 4in1 printer/copy etc needs a powered hub as does one ext optical drive or they will not function.
Anybody fry things or what to watch out putting in while plugged in?
I only need to have 3 or 4 max going on it but I have tried unplugged and with 3 plugged in at once they go unrecognized and become recognized as soon as i remove one.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
