Used to be that some laptops had weaker USB ports.  Might check the supply voltage to the board to make sure they are getting enough voltage?


I agree and that's what I thought too.  But then when connecting a external 9V battery to the Vin pin, should this not have fixed the problem?



Nope. A 9v battery probably supplies a lot less current than a USB port.

OTOH if you're outputting enough current on an I/O pin to cause problems then that pin isn't going to last very long.

No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)
