Question / Help OBS broke my keyboard


New Member
Idk how to explain this any further nor how to ask for help any more clearly than OBS breaks my keyboard, whenever i start up OBS my keyboard immediately gets unplugged and will only work for 5-10 seconds before being unplugged this issue stays after ive shut down OBS until i have replugged the keyboard atleast half a dozen times but only ever starts when OBS starts. I have tried with both Streamlabs OBS and regular OBS and both seem to have this problem.

Is your keyboard connected to the same USB hub as your capture card or webcam? Likely the combination is drawing too much power and so they're turning off.

Get USBView from to identify which hubs your devices are connected to. Move bandwidth-hungry devices like webcams and capture cards to separate hubs by switching their USB ports.
