When you resume your computer from standby or hibernation, you may receive a "USB Device Not Recognized" error message.

This error message occurs only if USB/PS2 combination devices are attached to the computer. One example of such a device is a keyboard that has both USB and PS2 connectors. You can use either connector for all of the keyboard functions.


During initialization, devices are reset too soon after they are powered on. In this situation, some devices may use the wrong connector.
