[Help!] Computer malfunction, any idea? (not ZTree related)   [Help!]

In Response to: [Help!] Computer malfunction, any idea? (not ZTree related) (Laurent Duchastel)

My computer is not that old yet I have buggy USB connections. Sometime the computer won't boot and I have to pull the plug(s} in question before it will. Then I plug them back in afterwards. I had to narrow down exactly which of the plugs were at fault through trial and error. (not a cable or peripheral issue - definitely the USB connections)

Unrelated I also have an issue where the screen will be black and I won't get the login or splash screen. I hit the power button put the computer to sleep - wait about 10 seconds then hit the power button again - and the screen displays.

All of these systems have quirks and the software just adds to it.

Hope that helps.
