USB devices disconnecting and reconnecting in Win 8.1 x64 on x61t on the slightest movement, but inconsistently. Files are getting corrupted!
I've disabled airbag protection.
I've disabled power saving options on USB ports.
I can't seem to fix this. I've installed every windows update I found mention of on the internet.
Could it be that the motherboard is damaged? Seems unlikely given that I get the same problem with usb ports on both left and right side of the machine.
Do I have to bid old faithful farewell?
Many others report this problem on other computers.
I also wonder if it's a problem with lenvo's new power management drivers delivered via windows update.

Just to rule out it being a hardware issue, have you tried booting the ThinkPad X61t from a Linux Live USB/ISO disc and seeing if the problem still occurs under that different operating system?
