Had the same thing happen on a new hp 2214us.... tried for several days to fix problems then brought it back to curcut city.... and received another with no problem. I felt it to be hardware problem but their tech person said it had to do with software ... I had downloaded drivers for it but still did not work... they took it back

Two USB devices not working when plugged into different USB ports at the same time. What I did to make it work: Plug a USB Hub into one USB port and plug the two USB devices into the Hub. No problems ! Did not bother to find out why.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
