W540 with Win10 - USB keyboard not working as it should

2015-08-12, 15:25 PM



after installing win10, i have a strange issue. I have a usb keyboard-device attached directly to one of the computers USB ports (have tried multiple usb ports). After win10 and lenovos win10 drivers, the device will only work right after boot or right after i pull the device out and put it back in, and then it will only work for some time before it dies again.


Another way to make it work is to uninstall the device from device manager and search for new hardware. Again, the device will only work for so long before its dead again.


This was not an issue on 8.1, and we have the same trouble on another W540 with win 10 as well - with the same kind of keyboard attached.
