Various ports can be seen behind and in front of a CPU; these are designed on a CPU to connect certain hardware such as printers, scanners, flash sticks, mouse and keyboard. The clash of these ports with a newly installed driver or an update will bring in errors in its operation. Once a port has been overridden by certain issues, it won’t work efficiently. It will start to behave in an awkward manner. It will turn on and off without any authentication and could also stop working. If such a thing happens, users won’t be able to access the device connected to that particular port. Resolving this issue isn’t that much complicated or time wasting. The issue can be solved by following the instructions carved out by the Microsoft support team. Follow these leads instead of spending dollars on a computer support team.
