Hi

First question my laptop USB keeps switching off when connected to external harddrives I.e. Hd connected and while transferring date both ways the hd will disconnect then reconnect and it will keep doing this but every so often it will work I've tried uninstalling the USB and then letting it reset which doesn't help the laptop is a hp and they sent me some updates but they didn't work if I reset my laptop to factory settings would that help at all?

In device manager right click on the USB hubs - properties - power management tab - untick Allow the computer to switch off...
