MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 238

I just got my computer back from the store with a MSI Z77 Mpower board, my old board had some problems so I got this one in return, but I'm having a few problems and would like to know if you guys can help me.

First, every time I shut the computer down, it doesn't exactly turn off, fans are still working, leds are still on, keyboard lights are still on, etc. I don't really like this and would like to know if it's normal, I read it already in here that the leds and keyboard lights being on is normal and that you can disable some of leds on the bios, but are the fans normal as well? Isn't there a way to turn this off.

Second, when I turn off the computer, as I said it keeps the lights and fans on, I can't turn it back on. If I press the power button, nothing happens, if press any keys on the keyboard, nothing happens, the only way to have it turn on again is by pressing the reset button, the one I have in my case. Am I the only one with this problem or is it like this for everyone?

Third, I can't do a restart. I'm using Windows 7 and every time I try to reboot it's the same as if I had turned off the computer, lights still on, fans still working, and I have to press the reset button to turn it on. Again, normal or am I just unlucky enough to have gotten a defective board in exchange for my old defective one?

Fourth, if I do a force shutdown, keep pressing the power button, the leds and fans will turn off, if there's no way to stop the fans and turn off the leds, is it okay to do a force shutdown, after normally shutting down the computer through windows of course, or can that damage the board or other components, or perhaps make me lose saved information?
I want to do this just so it doesn't keep consuming energy and doesn't keep me awake all night.

Sorry for my noob questions and I hope someone can give me some answers.

 

 Sounds like your sleep options are goofed up..  your windows power options are likely set to sleep the CPU when you push the power button or 'shutdown'

it may be something else but sounds like a display issue of some type but there may be something else at work here. so i dont think its the mobo, but obviously dont rule it out. try loading the display drivers your vid card needs from amd or nvidia website to make sure they are up to date and try to trouble shoot display problems first, but yes get a new mobo if you isolate it down to that

hard booting off shouldn't damage modern new components, but obviously will loose data if unsaved and its not the best way to shut down a pc.

Drivers are up to date. I've used an old RGB cable I had around, was using the HDMI port, and it's still the same.

No, options are working correctly, power button should shutdown the computer.
I even tried pressing the power button directly on the case once to see what would happen and it's the same.


In the bios there's an ACPI option which only allows me to select S1 or S3.
Do you guys have another option there?

Mine is selected to S3, which according to Wikipedia: "S3: Commonly referred to as Standby, Sleep, or Suspend to RAM. RAM remains powered", should probably cause my issues.
Is there a way to deactivate this option in the bios or in the OS?


PS: I just tried to use the actual Suspension button and the outcome is similar, the mouse whoever is still on in suspension mode and when I try to shutdown there is a sound of something stopping, which doesn't happen when I use the suspension.
With suspension there's yet another problem though, I can't return to the OS by pressing the mouse or the keyboard, which means that again I have to use the reset button on the case, which leads me to a screen saying the windows didn't shutdown correctly last time.

Hey guys,

So I was recently having a problem with my Gigabyte board (UD3H) and was looking at this one for a replacement.

Is there any known issues/quirks this board has that I should know of? (Like USB 3.0 ports not working properly?)

Thanks.

I know some were having an issue with some USB ports not working. However that problem is easily fixed by updating the BIOS. Also if you do pick up this board I would recommend not installing the MSI Suite software that comes with it. I had a few issues when I installed it. However after uninstalling it my problems went away. Overall it is a good board.

first of all love the board and the software bundle. but having problem saving settings on network genie. whenever i open battlefield to play online. i always have to minimize and come back to network genie to prioritize it. is there any other good software out there which does the same job or i just stick with msi network genie.

thanks

My 3570k likes 4.5, all I have to do is bump voltage to 1.285, offset to 100%, multiplier to 45 and I'm set. All else can be on defaults.

Just got this board and trying to over clock my 2500k. The thing is that with my old Asus board i was able to keep it at a lower clock on idle (1.5 GHz i think) and it boosted to 4.5 on load. This one has me at 4.5 constant. Is there an option i missed to keep the idle clocks low?
