|Since I first hacked my V2, badflash chip, win98se.......whenever I dis-connected from the AC, upon re-connecting to the AC the power lite would come on....nothing else. I had to hold the power button down for eight seconds or so, to get it to go off. Everything else worked ok. Here's how I fixed that behaviour by accident:|
I've been trying different things/settings to get the USB working better. After reading some of the stuff on this website: http://www.usbman.com/Guides/VIA%20Tips%20and%20Tricks.htm#Top I installed the VIA USB filter driver.....I had never done this before because VIA says it's for Win95 only. Apparently it's not so. After a successful reboot, I rebooted again, got into the BIOS settings and made the following changes: disabled write pipeline cache, disabled system BIOS cachable. I haven't checked USB performance yet.......but by accident I guess, the power botton problem is now fixed. Whether this was caused by the USB filter driver or the setting changes, I don't know. It is worth some investigation however. I wonder if a thread should be started for USB problems/VIA related stuff? I've been using the 4-in-1 driver 4.25a.
