I am being cursed with a problem in my laptop for a few months and I have been unable to solve it so far.
My usb ports work only once in a while. In other words, they always work when I reboot and then after some time, they stop working.
If I have a usb thumb drive, it disapears from the system or if it is a mouse, it stops working after a few moments.
What have I done so far?
- Have upgraded from 22.04 to 22.10
- Have tried xset -dpms and also back on and everything is the same
- Tried the very same devices and ports in windows, since this is a dual boot machine and YES, they work just fine in Windows, so it is a ubuntu or ubuntu mate thing, not a computer thing.
- I never experienced this problem with any of my desktops or previous laptops.
Everything unsucessfull so far.
I should also mention that for some reason, it works some times, as if by magic.
My gear: Aspire A3 a314 with an amd ryzen 5 3500U
Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you.
