I am running Vista Home on a Fujitsu Siemens Pi2515 laptop. 120 GB Hard drive with 2GB of Memory.
Was having no problems until I bought and connected a 7 port 2.0 USB powered Hub.Running from that is HP Printer, which is not switched on all the time as is a Iomega 200GB External disc drive, for back ups Also running from the hub is a Logitech wireless mouse and a 2GB Pen Drive. The problem is that the Laptop will not power up if I turn on with the USB drive connected.
Is it a common fault with Vista or Fujitsu Seimens Laptops. It gets very tiresome having to keep unplugging and plugging in the USB drive every time i switch on. Any advice or solution will be greatly appreciated.
Its a common problem with Vista. if you try to boot with an external drive connected and switched on it won't get past the bios read. I have the same issue, but consider it only a minor one. Just make sure your external drive is off when you boot.
