3 usb Dongle

I'm trying to sort a problem eith a laptop that keeps rebooting. The screen will go black and there is what appears to be very blurred text that you cant read in blue, the text is a lot larger than this. I have checked the event viewer and it says there was an unexpexted shutdown with event ID 6008 but no explanation. I ran the laptop yesterday for quite a while with and without the USB dongle with no probs but this morning its done it twice whilst using the dongle. I have since disconnected it to see if it will do it again.

Has anyone else had any problems with these 3 Dongles?

I think I would check out the Laptop first. Does it work ok with a Pen Drive?

Yeah its fine with one of those.

I've just found in the box for the dongle a usb lead with a second adaptor so you can plug it in to two ports for extra power, so I'm just checking that out at the moment.

It is possible you have some sort of driver/software problem. Have you installed new software recently? I would be tempted to restore to an earlier date when the system was stable. Have you used the 3 for long?
