Written by IT News on 10:47 PM

Microsoft has confirmed a problem with the USB 2.0 devices to stop working intermittently when connected to computers with Windows Vista Service Pack 2. Although it is possible to confirm that some users really have a problem with the latest service pack for Vista, the Redmond Company has so far failed to find the cause of the problems. In this respect, the software giant stated that only scenarios with USB 2.0 Bluetooth devices no longer work intermittently on Vista SP2 machines studied and that information would be disclosed when it becomes available.

"This problem may occur when a Bluetooth dongle is connected to a USB 2.0 hub. There are limited USB ports found on some chipsets. Therefore, the manufacturers sometimes build internal USB 2.0 hub on their computer. If a Bluetooth - dongle is connected to a USB 2.0 hub, Bluetooth device may stop working temporarily, "Microsoft explained.

Since the problem in research, Redmond Company does not have an update to resolve or even a hotfix for this problem. All software giant is two temporary solutions are designed to restore functionality. "Portable computer users - if your laptop has a Bluetooth switch, use Bluetooth, turn on and turn off the Bluetooth radio. Desktop users - disconnect and reconnect the Bluetooth dongle," Microsoft stated.

If you want to change and then the Bluetooth radio in Windows Vista SP2 users should get to Device Manager. To do this, they have in the Device Manager in the search box in the Start menu. After the Device Manager is launched users must right-click the Bluetooth radio, and select Disable. Following this is disabled, right-click the user to reactivate the Bluetooth radio.

Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 to manufacturing by the end of April 2009. But the actual bits are not available for general download. The Redmond company point to the deadline was scheduled for the next few weeks.

    Bluetooth? I installed Vista 64 SP2even though it took me 4 tries to get SP1 to install correctly. Everything seemed fine and I was very happy--until I inserted one of my USB2.0 Thumb drives. The OS would no longer recognize ANY of my 7 USB Thumb drives (or external USB HDD's). They would not appear in "My Computer" but did appear in the "safely remove hardware" tray icon. No matter what I did, I could not access any of my USB devices. So--rather than uninstall SP2, I did a full system recovery from an image I made immediately before installing SP2. 20 Mintues later and SP2 was history and I had my Thumb drives back. AND, Microsoft has the gaul to think that I will open my wallet once again--for Windows 7 (Vista SP3). I am so sick of the Redmond Company that it's beyond words. NO MORE OF MY MONEY FOR MICROSOFT!!
