Disable Device Drivers

Rather than removing a device driver you suspect may be causing an issue with your hub, you can simply disable it to see if the problem is resolved.

  1. Select the X at the top right to reveal the Disable check boxes.
  2. Enabling the checkmark in the box to the left of the device name is a fast and simple way to troubleshoot custom device drivers you suspect may be affecting the performance or operation of your hub.
  3. Remove the checkmark from the Disable checkbox to re-enable the device driver.
  4. Select the red X to hide the Disable checkboxes from view. NOTE: The disable check boxes will remain visible after a page refresh or when leaving and returning to the Devices page. The X will also remain red when any of the boxes has a checkmark.
