  1. Hi everyone.
    I have a drawing tablet "Wacom Bamboo MTE-450A" connected through a USB port.
    never had any problems with it, lately it started "connecting" and "disconnecting" making this USB plug/unplug sound, just like it was physically disconnected an dosnt get any power, even if im not using it or moving it, and its getting worse to a point where now its mostly "off".
    I changed cables and changed the port it was connected to, I also reinstalled the drivers, and there is no change.
    I tested it on a different computer and it seems to work properly! other devices connected to my PC through USB seem to work well (keyboard and mouse).
    I have a new computer so I believe its not to blame (hardware-wise)

    im lost, any advice would be appreciated.

    The tablet may not getting enough power from the new computers USB ports. Check the computers bios to make sure that the Legacy USB settings are enabled
