I'm having the weirdest problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, please move this post if I am posting in the wrong forum.


I will list my parts that I used now, because the problem may involve multiple components.

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4
Processor: Intel i7 3770k LGA 1155
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB 8GB total
Harddrive: Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM
Videocard: MSI 660 ti
Keyboard: Noppoo Choc Mini


I listed my keyboard because the issue may involve the keyboard as well as the motherboard.

I got my computer parts in the mail from Newegg, and I put everything together. I have built multiple computers in the past, so I kinda know what I am doing.

I go to turn on the computer for the first time, everything starts, but I notice that my motherboard is giving a error code A2.

I look at my motherboards manual and the error code stands for 'IDE Detect'

Funny, my CD drive and harddrive are Sata connections.

I ignored this problem, and try to go to my bios. Nothing. My keyboard is not responding. I unplug it, and use my old basic Logitech keyboard that I bough in 2008. It works, and I install Windows 7 64 bit.

After I install Windows, I install and update my drivers. Plug in my Noppoo Choc mini keyboard, and I have no issues. Restarting my computer works fine.

Today, 3 days later after I got this computer, I go to turn it on. My motherboard says error A2. The same error that I had when I first booted up my computer. On my screen I see the Asrock logo and I can NOT go into my bios. My Noppoo choc mini is not responding. Restart it, same problem. I plug in my old keyboard again, everything works fine. I can plug in my Noppoo choc again to log in my computer. If the keyboard is plugged in when I first turn on my computer, nothing responds.

I then make sure all of my drivers and bios is up to date. Everything is.

A few hours ago, I even unplugged and re plugged everything in my computer. I am still getting the same error message when I turn on my computer using the Noppoo Choc keyboard, but none with my logitech keyboard. I'm assuming that the error has something to do with my motherboard.

I'm also going to add that maybe something did not install correctly. I have a icon on the bottom right of my computer 'Safely remove hardware and eject media'. When I click it it says "eject WDC WD5003bignumberhere ATA Device"

Maybe that has something to do with it.

I'm considering doing a fresh windows 7 install, but the problem occurred even before I installed Windows 7.

If I am posting in the wrong forum, please move this topic and not delete it. I really want to fix this issue. Thank you for your time smile.gif

Well, in some cases some keyboards won't work. Gigabyte had problems with Logitech G510 on their Z77 boards at start. Then they released BIOS updates to fix it. So if you are already using the latest BIOS, report to ASRock, and hope that they will fix it.

That's of course if other Noppoo Choc Mini users report that such problem doesn't exist.

Did you tried a different USB port?

Yes. I plugged the keyboard in other USB ports even the USB 3.0 ports.

Update

I guess I was sorta wrong.

The keyboard works when plugged into the USB 3.0 port, but not when I restart the computer.

If I turn off the computer through windows, or if I manually turn if off, it works fine. But I restart my computer, it won't boot with the keyboard plugged in.

I guess its a temporary fix.
