New Custom PC Usb ports flicker — Micro Center

New Custom PC Usb ports flicker

I just finished building my new pc, but for some reason it seems like the usb ports flicker. For a split second some usb devices lose power and then regain it. I have an external drive that gets affected by this and when the usb ports lose power the led on my ram sticks also shut off for a brief second. Could i have done something wrong?


  • This is just power to the USB and the PC does not reboot when this happens? If so my first step would be to go into Control Panel > Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings >  USB Settings > USB Selective Suspend Settings. Disable this. See if the issue persists.
