after installing Front Panel USB 3.0 Port Hub Motherboard failing?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi i bought an ebay "Front Panel USB 3.0 Port Hub"
Here ---> http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DC-4-Pin-USB-2-0-9-Pin-3-5-F...

after installing it via "PCI-E, USB2.0 9PIN, DC Big 4PIN (3PIN)"
it worked half the time with the provided drivers, a few days later i got the error "Power Surge on Hub Port".

so i disconnected the device but my pc randomly gets stuck on the bios screen and the mouse freezes randomly for 5 secs or so, in other cases mouse is freezes until i have to restart the PC.

Is my motherboard damaged? any solutions?

Here is my pc specs:
-Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
-Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07GHz
-RAM 12.0GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 539MHz (7-7-7-20)
-Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. X58-USB3 (Socket 1366)
-Graphics 1024MB NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 (Gigabyte)

Thanks

You could try unplugging the device completely then uninstall the device from Device Manager (view hidden devices). Then turn off computer, flick off the PSU switch, press the power button a few times to help drain any power left, unplug it from the surge protector/wall outlet and then clear CMOS by pulling out the motherboard battery for a minute or so. You may need to put a jumper on the CMOS pins (2pins below battery and bove front panel connector). Make sure battery is back in and there is no jumpers on when you turn the pc on.Then boot computer up, load optimized defaults and then run a sfc /scannow. Then redo your overclock and other bios settings.

That should rule out any bios and os problems.
