S10 ideapad - fails to accept 4-port usb hub

I got an external usb keyboard, and a 4-port iogear usb hub

to connect both a mouse & the keyboard.


The keyboard lights go on, briefly, during boot = = but at the login screen,

neither mouse nor keykboard will work.


Any ideas - ?

I have the same issue with my Thinkpad. It all depends on what all is plugged into the USB. If they are all used then you don't have enough power to power the hub completely. Only a powered hub will work.


Does one work if only one of them is plugged into the hub?

Re: S10 ideapad - fails to accept 4-port usb hub


have a logitech keyboard (100mA) and a lenovo laser mice (100mA) with noname 4-port (??mA). (usb 2.0 max.~ 500mA)

you could found the information about power (mA) on base cover of your devices

. no probs with S10-3t ..

when use the "first two" in a four row usb port hub (selfpowered) ...

did you try both ports of your S10 ?
