Printer, Scanner, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse Problems.

    If you are using Windows lol I feel bad for you! If you are using Linux you won't have these problems.

    Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10 will all have problems randomly losing connection to things that worked fine yesterday or even five minutes ago. Here are a few things to try that fix 99% most Windows problems.

    1. Always with Windows restart the computer when anything stops working. If this doesn't fix it go to number 2.
    (Software, Hardware, Sound, Printers, Monitors, Keyboards, Mouse...)

    2. Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, unplug the device (Printers, Monitors, Keyboards, Mouse...) that's not working. If the device has power (Printer, Scanner, Monitor) also shut it down and unplug it. Then plug everything back in and turn everything back on. If this doesn't fix it go to number 3.

    3. Check the inside of the computer if you see a ton of dust clean it. Check the wires and cables make sure they are all plugged in and working. Replace any that look bad, replace the USB cables if you have extra's. If it's still not working the device maybe need to be replaced. Check it on another computer if you have one.
