I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 Bit installed on my HP Pavilion Windows Tablet with an Intel® Core™ i3-4030U CPU @ 1.90GHz × 4. When I've booted Ubuntu, my USB mouse does not work. The laser is lighting during the boot process, but when the login screen appears, it goes out. I figured that it's apparently a problem with the USB devices as when I plug in my USB stick, the drive does not appear and I have only sda's in my /dev/ folder. Usually I have to reboot several times for the USB devices to work. What could cause this problem?

Here is what lsusb outputs when the USB ports don't work:

stefan@stefan-HP-Pavilion-13-x360-PC:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I restarted the system and now the USB works. Here lsusb's output:

stefan@stefan-HP-Pavilion-13-x360-PC:~$ lsusb 
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

On Bus 003 Device 002 the blank line is for an USB memory device. On Bus 002 Device 002 we have the Optical Mouse.

Edit: I discovered that the USB works every time I start the system by first booting the recovery mode in GRUB, then selecting "resume" in the menu. But USB never works when I start the system regularly.

Here is the output of dmesg | grep usb with USB working after booting normally:

Edit (08/25/15): I discovered some interesting phenomenon. Whenever I boot Windows 8 (where the USB never causes any problems), then I reboot and select Ubuntu from the GRUB menu, it suddenly works. How can a functioning USB under Windows cause it to work properly after rebooting into Ubuntu?

    Excessive dust in the port, a shorting USB extension cable, a flaky chipset, operator error, the list goes on and on. Has anything that you've tried altered the results? If so, edit your question and let us know that along with anything else you think we might need to know like whether or not you are using an external USB hub, whether the devices are less or more reliable when attached to a different system, the output from the command lsusb before and after plugging in the mouse and or before and after plugging in the flash drive. – Elder Geek Feb 20 '15 at 20:16

    output of dmesg |grep usb might be helpfull (both cases) – czapa.ols Jul 29 '15 at 0:17
  • Did you try using any other mouse? – kashminder Jul 29 '15 at 13:09
  • @kashminder: Yes, I did, the same problem. Note that the problem affects all USB devices, not just the mouse. It either works entirely, so that I can use my mouse and mount USB sticks, or USB devices are not recognized at all. – Stefan Hamcke Jul 30 '15 at 20:55

    Boot to recovery, run lsmod > mods.recovery , reboot run lsmod > mods.regular. Compare contents of mods.recovery and mods.regular, see if there's any modules present in recovery but not in regular boot – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Dec 7 '15 at 22:29

Okay, the problem got kind of resolved by changing to the latest Ubuntu version (15.10 Wily). I also removed Windows from my laptop when I installed Wily, so this is now a single-boot system, if this was in any way related to the problem. In Ubuntu Wily I haven't discovered any problems so far.
