I've suddenly come across a weird issue with charging my tablet. It is only charging via PC usb ports (only front ones atm). It was charging fine yesterday. As far as I know it hasn't updated anything.
I have tried different cables that I know that work as my phone will charge with these and the tablet doesn't charge via the AC adapter.
I know the AC adapter is working as my phone will charge through it.
Anyone any ideas on this one? I think it is a software issue otherwise I wouldn't be able to charge it through the USB ports on the front of my computer case.
If need be, I can do a full reset as I don't tend to store data on this tablet, only use it for email, internet and streaming media.
Thanks in advance for any aid

Do NOT use cheap "thin" USB cables.
Once changing to using a thicker USB cable, I haven't had this issue re-occur.

Just in case those are wondering which cables I purchased, these are the ones (Startech extension USB cable - StarTech.com 3 ft Black USB 2.0 Extension Cable A to A - Extension Cable, item model number USBEXTAA3BK).
