I have a on-going problem with trying to use an external usb2 hub. My pc will not start with it plugged in and also shuts down when I plug it in when pc is running.
I've tried to check it out on the Asus site but my motherboard's (ASUS H81M-E) serial no. doesn't match up for me to enter their site.
Been in touch with the pc manufacturer (PC SPECIALISTS UK) who after many emails want me to send it to them. I live in Spain and the shipping costs would be prohibitive for me.
The pc is 2 years old and has worked faultlessly and it's so frustrating with this issue of not being able to use the hub.
Basically, being of the older generation, plugging usb devices into the rear of the pc is difficult for me.
I've tried 2 different hubs with the same result.
I think it must be related to the anti-surge something or other.
I thought the usb hub would be the solution with it being on my desk, instead of groping around the rear of the tower.
Anybody have an idea what I could try to resolve this problem?

Any help gratefully received.
