A few months ago I bought a NitroPC and at first all looked pretty good but from time to time after a restart (probably when I used the system with a tails usb stick before… but I am not sure how this would cause this behavior) the system does not allow me to type the admin password, so I cannot use the machine at all.
The strange thing is, I can type in the disk encryption password, but not the admin password. It seems that USB access is simply blocked when cubes is starting and for some reason I do not get prompted to allow USB access to the keyboard and mouse (anymore). So the cursus is blinking but I cannot type. Simply rebooting does not help at all. I really need to disconnect the power cable completely.
I find this behavior very annoying and disruptive. Can anybody explain this behavior and tell me how I can force the system to accept USB devices like keyboard and mouse automatically (and always) at startup ?
