A computer enthusiast since fairly recently [Win2k] got the geek bug. A convert to off road mountain biking (used to snowboard.) Hobbyist mechanic, recently purchased an ’81 Citroen Dyane in need of some TLC (always wanted a 2CV.)

As would not attempt to recap a mobo, would not attempt to build a wheel [MTB] but enjoy maintaining my car, bike & PCs. And well, who knows… I might just service those forks?

So many words, so little conveyed. We need short concise answers, this is not the place for lengthy essays & personal experiences.

comment USB 2.0 device (scanner) does not work with xhci_hcd on USB 3.0 system
Was this system upgraded to latest version? Your brother's laptop is a fresh install? I ask because upgrading over fresh install can cause weird problems like this. However they are different hardware so could be a nasty bug.
