Since I switched over to my new computer, an HP ENVY Phoenix 810-430qe Desktop PC, I have been plagued with “not enough USB controller resources” popping up in my system tray when I take advantage of your hubs to get up in the range of 10-12 devices connected. It seems to happen quickest when I use the 10C2 USB 3 hub plugged into a USB 3 port. But it happens eventually with all combinations of my Plugable USB 3 10 port hub, my Plugable USB 2 10 port hub, and then USB 2 or USB 3 ports on my computer. I don’t know what these “controller resources” are that there’s not enough of, but I’m pretty sure it’s not power / amps. All of devices are either powered or plugged into a powered hub, except for the mouse and keyboard. All devices work fine if I unplug something else. And both hubs work fine on my old computer.
I read that some Intel motherboards / chipsets have problems with USB 3. Could that be what I’m seeing here?
Could I possibly get around this by buying a high end USB 3 PCIe card like Highpoint’s RocketU 1144C? If I do that, would that put me into a completely different set of “controller resources” for devices? They say each port on their card has its own controller, and that they support hubs.
Any thoughts / suggestions / help would be greatly appreciated. I am shocked that my new high end computer seemingly can’t handle as many USB devices as my six year old computer could.
