I am running Windows Xp Pro with SP2. I have several USB devices connected to this computer and have not had any problems. I have tryed using onboard usb ports to connect this device and I have tryed using a USB 2.0 pci expansion card.
This device has its own power unit.
When this device is plugged into this machine, it prevents the machine from completely shutting down. The computer (when shutdown is selected) will power off and the HDD, PSU and CPU will turn off, however the computers lights on the front of the machine will remain on. To turn the machine back on again, I need to pull either the power out of the USB hub or pull the power out of the back of the computer.
I have been through the bios and power management settings and have tryed all the settings I can imagine. I am pulling my hair out. I have even gone as far as to replace the unit with a new one. I have been told that the unit is in-compatible with my motherboard. Understanding why is beyond my knowledge field.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Can someone help me .. I am willing to try anything to get this going and it is driving me nuts. The manufacturer has told me that they will not authorise for the product to be refunded and I will have to simply put up with the fact that I bought something which is in-compatible with my computer.
ANY HELP APPRECIATED .. this will be a tough one to solve .. if it can be solved.
