A Device Attached to the System is not Functioning error message on RDP while Display remains black RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason my computer becomes unresponsive after sitting going to standby, but only sometimes, like two-three times a week. The screens go blank, so I try to remote desktop it and it says :

    A Device Attached to the System is not Functioning.

    Does anyone have idea what is this about. i have checked the Event viewer and can't find anything regarding issue. also checked by update VGA driver. my OS is windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

  • Hi,


    Firstly, when issue occurs, please remove all the external devices and see how it works.


    Also, please update all the drivers to the latest and use security applications to scan your system for Virus.


    Hope this helps.
