G18's keyboard and my other peripherals stop working.

Hello everyone 

My G18 2024 laptop's keyboard stops working all of a sudden in the middle of my work. Also no external IO device works anymore. I have updated all my drivers and windows. They only fix for it is to restart it. 

I was wondering if anyone else is facing the same issue. 

 

The trackpad keeps working fine but only external devices and internal keyboard stops working all of a sudden.

Hello,

After hours of trying to solve this problem, I believe I have solved this issue for my own laptop.

In order to fix this problem please open the Device Manager when everything is working fine,

then under the "universal Serial Bus Controller" right-click on each driver one by one and go to its "Properties".

While in Properties go under the "Power Management" tab, and uncheck the box for "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" , This has worked really great so far.

Hello,
The laptop is now in service (second time with the same issues) under warranty.
I'm pretty sure they will not be able to solve it 😊
Yes, I'm using an external monitor, 2 USB hubs (not enough USB port on laptop 😊) for external HDD, headphones, keyboard and mouse.
As soon as I'll have it back, I return to you with all information regarding brands/models and system infos
Thank you for your support

Hi @Mihaik7 ,

Thank you for your reply. Could you please provide the laptop serial number and repair number through private message? 

We will work together with our local service team to verify this issue. Thank you.

Hello

I sent you the details

Thank you very much 😊

Yesterday I had a chat with a customer service and they told me they had in depth tested the laptop and didn't discovered any defect. I know that the laptop is ok, I just want to know why these problems are happening. I don't have the knowledge and tools to find it by myself 😊 We agreed to further test it by connecting external devices to all USB ports, since I use it in this way (USB hub, mouse, keyboard, HDD, headphones...) and hopefully the issue will happen to them too. 😊
