bought powered usb hub
ok so your motherboard ports suck big time
i cant help but wonder WTF is going on there. even laptops usually arent that bad.
ya they suck big time
Glad you got it worked out, mafia97.
I tried to assist you, but was told otherwise about the power deliver to the Seagate unit.
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.
before you go anywhere with that, take the PC out of the case and test the USB that way. you can narrow it down to see if its a problem with the board, or a short in the case/case USB ports.
will do that, just cant get time
will do it as soon as i get time
MSI Warranty Information
You might want to check on the box it came in or with the place you got it.
If they don't have a different warranty period on it, I would guess one year.
mine i bought in 2009, when i joined forum, you guys helped me build it
shame it has gone bad in so short years :shadedshu
