    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.
    thanks again

    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.

    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.
