That is why I asked for the model number earlier.
IMO, the motherboard, or some part on it, is not putting out the required current (ex.: could be a component that is not in specs, poor solder joints, degradation of some regulator(or associated component), or quite a few other things).
If you are not going to replace the MB anytime soon, and don't want the powered hub laying around... you can get a USB 3.0 card, that is powered, and use that.
Most of the USB 3.0 cards have a seperate connecter for the supply of power, as the USB 3.0 ports can operate at a higher ouput current.
Normally, USB 2.0 should output 500ma vs. USB 3.0 which should output 900ma, both are at 5V. <-- Simplistic info.
Anyway glad you got it working.
actualy i was tight on money for few months, as soon as i got money i bought a powered hub.
can wiring the psu to different components of computer cause this, but i think wiring is totaly correct
ya i was thinking about buyinga usb 3.0 peripheral card.
and does anybody know how much is the warranty on MSI eclipse motherboard, i couldnt find it anywhere.
