I'm having a small issue with a USB bluetooth adapter.

It works perfectly fine, yet when i turn my computer off then back on, it wont enable itself with the computer. I have to unplug the adapter from the system and plug it back in for it to actualy get power and start working, if you know what I mean.

I suspect its power management related, I know its my system because the adapter has worked perfectly fine on other systems and turned on when the system has turned on.

Any suggestions?

I have this same problem with my MP3 player.

It just does not recognise that the device is plugged in unless I remove it and plug it back in.

I would probably say that its partial system incompatiability with the device or some similar rubbish.

Are you guys using alot of USB devices? If yes, power might be an issue. There is an option that allows the computer to turn off this device to save power if you click your way into the properties of the USB root hubs in device manager. Iv experienced the same with a bluetooth dongle.

Other than that, upgrading the USB device firmware along with the USB root hub driver in use can help

actualy this is a common prob. most pc's are actualy programed using the usb ports its faster at the factory and repair shops. so when you turn on the comp it looks to boot from any usb device (this also happens if you have memory card slots ie..sd cards). i believe in your bios setup you can change it to not look to boot from the usb. your primary boot should be your HD, secondary CD drive and third usb or floppy.

what kind of PC do you have

I built it myself. MSI KM3M-V mainboard, 1532mb of DDR SDRAM, AMD Athlon XP 2800+

You'll find my boot sequence is Diskette, CD and then Hard Drive. The issue occurs on seperate hubs too.

I can assure you, I know my own BIOS. Besides even if the company that built my system (Wait, that would be me...) did use the USB port to program the computer, then failed to correctly set up the BIOS before shipping it to customer (me again) It would not cause a USB device to not get any power at all when swiching the power on.

well in that case the company that built the comp (you) should not have a prob helping you to fix it. considering they (you) should know everything about it. if the company (you) gives you any crap about getting it fixed be sure to report them to the better business bureau. Keep other people from falling victim to their crap!

You can stop posting now.

Anyway, I tried what you suggested [+Glasius+] and using it on its own hub with no other devices on that particular hub seams to fix it. Had to juggle some of my devices around but all is well.
