Actually on mine, I just disabled in device manager, I didn't touch anything in the BIOS. I suppose disabling in BIOS would be equivalent.
It is POWER!
Has to be! Hooked up an old Generic 500W PSU to the MB and tested. My symptoms went away. USB devices were fast and responsive. GPS had great lock, Wireless adapter was steady etc..
I reverted to the Opus 360W and the problems returned. Even "weirder" I noticed while playing in the device manager my list was refreshing as it does sometimes. It goes away when I disable the USB network adapter. Just before I disabled it in it's property window I noticed that when it refreshed the list in the background, the "This device is working properly" changes to "No drivers for this device are installed". I disabled it but the problems persisted.
I am glad i am 99% sure of what the problem is but I do not know which direction to go in now. I would really appreciate advice here.
With the 500W test PSU I got 5.10V on the 5V rail and 5.08 on the 5VSB.
On the Opus 360W I get 5.08 on the 5V rail and 4.91 steady on the 5VSB.
I am debating between the following:
-The Opus being sub standard on the 5VSB is the problem.
-My FX-62 (125W) is too much for the opus.
I have seen nice 45W AMD processors for around 50$ and wouldn't mind picking one up to replace the FX-62 and save the energy.
OR: Do I call Opus and have them RMA the PSU due to the low voltage on the 5VSB rail, OR both?
Any ideas, suggestions would be great! Thank you.
hi all, l got the same mob. my fist rebost were great. but since redoing the computer.i'm using tiny xp. i fast boot times.
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
I have two of these boards, one with a 4850e (in the car), and one with a 5050e (HTPC in the house). The HTPC USB is rock solid, but I'm running Linux on it. It also runs off a bigger power supply. The car PC USB wasn't reliable until I disabled USB 2.0, but it also runs off an M2-ATX, and it's running Windows XP. I wonder if it really is the Windows USB driver, or is it the power supply to blame?
Well thank you for the advice. I am going to put an order in for the 4850e and go form there...I will report back.
what i was trying to say was how can i get faster boot times and faster shutdown times.
please help. i dont know what i did wrong. I have done my sys manny times.
