It’s not needed with a powermeter – the lights in those USB units are on, while the PC is off I understand, but how much power is actually being consumed in that state? Think I’ve eliminated the power supply as I went and got another one, have the same problems still. I am assuming a voltage surge occurred at some time during the first restart, but don’t know if it has damaged the motherboard the psu or both, and I’m hoping that someone will be able to come up with a diagnostic that will let me identify the faulty culprit. This is totally excessive. Yikes, that’s a massive amount of power. I didn’t realise I was giving away my age in that comment.

If someone have more suggestions, they are very appreciated EDIT: Obviousl;y make sure that all your USB related drivers are up to date. I remember, that the idle power measured in the test, was higher than usual – 7 watts, I think.

Haven’t noted them down Basically I’d have to go into my walk-in closet and reach to a corner that’s hard to reach. Been into the minidump file which contains “Probably caused by: Only diskettes I can find seemed to take the files, but QFlash ga-ma78g-es3h see them, now windows can’t, and also won’t format it.

My perephials loudspeaker, ADSL, printer, scanner and so on uses a total of around watts measured in standby.
I wonder if people generally apppreciate how much power USB devices can consume in S3! ga-ma78g-ds3
Users browsing this forum: Think I’m up said creek without said implement. But I can’t really shut it down from the power strip either, because then I’d still need to shut down my UPS. No difference Seems to be time gaa-ma78g-ds3h a mail to Gigabyte. Assuming that at least part of the motherboard is faulty, a replacement gives me another problem.

Without thinking I let it. Thanks for the help so far, and any more if it comes.
December 25, Though, I can buy another power strip, which automatically turns of all apparatus’, except the main power eater. Sun Aug 31, 6: Thanks for the suggestions. I’d just want it to consume no power at all when shut down from the OS. In about a dozen different boards with USB, I’ve never seen such a ga-a78g-ds3h.
It might be worth trying a different version if ga-ma78-gds3h CPU supports it as this may help.
As they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Now the creature stirring in this house will not be the lunatic shouting at his mouse.
However, any investment in money to a device that actually makes it shut down will never pay itself back, and the effort necessary to reach to the hard power button behind the case is also too much.
So I’d just like to say these things are broken by design. It won’t solve the problem but it will make you feel better. Thanks for the help-fingers crossed Thanks for the reply, forgot to mention I’ve done that as well.
You should find that you pendrive will now be seen although it might appear as a hard drive.
