Can a usb cable cause a BSOD?
Sure! There are several data and power circuits running through the various wires in a USB cable and connector. If one or more wire, or the connector is damaged, and an exposed wire or contact comes into contact with another contact, it could cause undesirable results, including system freezes or shutdowns - and hopefully not cause any permanent damage. If it is the power circuit, it could cause the PSU to shutdown - hopefully as a protective action.Can a usb cable cause a BSOD?
If a bad cable. The cable itself is just a wire. There are no circuits in USB cables or connectors. So if the cable is good, and there is no device connected on the other end of the cable, then the computer would not even notice the cable being connected. It is like plugging an extension cord into the wall. If nothing is plugged into the extension cord, there's no current flowing through the cable.An alternative to always keep in mind, is that once ya plug in the cable, it activates a bad driver/program already present on the PC
And, smaller cables do not impact air flow as much either.Two of each size, and they really improved the cable management in my case, plus they're easier to bend and manipulate around corners and such. In addition, they're the perfect length for my drives to motherboard connections!
