USB switch causes yellow screen
« on: 03:36 AM - 02/21/11 »
Just like the thread title says I get a yellow screen on my XIM3 when I switch between my PC and my Xbox.  It will happen every 4 or 5 times I switch, so often in fact I'm contemplating not using a switch at all. 

It's a pain in the @#$% to have to unplug everything and re-plug in order to clear it, which is the point of having the switch in the first place.  If I don't unplug everything from the switch and the XIM it will not recognize any USB devices no matter how many times I reset it.

Anyone else having this issue?

I'm using one by IOGear:

It's happened on all 3 firmwares, including the latest Beta.

Will do (though he hasn't been active for a few days).  Thanks OBs.

I'm in contact with him directly. He is on it. He'll contact you. We've been trying to find a consistent repro of the problem and sounds like you have it. What mouse and keyboard are you using?

I got the Yellow screen of dealth last night when plugging in my n52te no USB switch....The controller and mouse were already plugged in at the time this occured. I unplugged everything as stated before and it worked fine after that. I'm running the newest firmware released yesterday. I also had a RSOD the night before that running the first Beta firmware did the unbrick method and didnt happen again.

Mouse = G500
Key = n52te

I'm using a G500/G110.  Not sure if it matters but the G110 does work, but it has a question mark on the XIM3 for my keyboard.  Also the backlighting doesn't work, but that might be due to the fact there's no drivers involved.
