ACER Veriton 5600GT how to turn off USB power after shutdown

I have a USB powered hard drive plugged into one of the rear ports and it stays powered on even when system is shutdown. I cannot see any BIOS settings to manage USB power status. Are there any hardware jumpters on the motherboard which would change it so that the USB disk powers down when the system is shutdown.

    Thanks for the suggestions but I have certain behaviors and a separation of data types in mind for the non-tech end user of this system. I will buy a cheap PCI USB card and use that - I expect (hope!) that its USB ports will power down when the PCI bus powers down. Cheers.

Not likely.
What you have is power over USB which is good because it allows the hard drive to get enough power to run without a seperate power cord. This is also usefull for IPODS and other media that Charge through a USB. It means you can turn your computer off and still charge something.

If its an external hard drive, its meant to be removed. You can right click and disconnect it from the bottom right and then remove it safely.

You may have a port that doesnt provide power when turned off, maybe a front USB port, you could plug it in there.

There most likely isnt a way to change any jumpers unless your system board instructions specify that you can and how to. Dont go tinkering around because if you put jumpers on the wrong spot, you can blow some of the small components on the board.

This would render the USB completely useless.

If you want a permanent extar HDD for back up, just get a new IDE for the internal, There cheep these days. you can get a 250 gig IDE for under $60.00

- Internet cable goes in port that looks like cable plug
- USB plugs go in matching ports on back of PB
- they can only be installed one way
- It doesn't matter which port they are plugged into

Hi, can i install a 720 GB internal hard disk for my acer veriton? my present configuration are windows 7 pro,32 bit 160 GB HDD. thanks in advance.


I found a pdf manual here and it shows that this computer does not have SATA ports, but does have 2 IDE ports, so if it's an IDE hard drive you want to install then you should be able to. However, your 2nd IDE port is likely used by a cd/dvd rom drive, so unless you are replacing the hard drive rather than adding one, you would need to remove the disc drive. There are very affordable external usb disc drives available.

Changing Onboard Video


Hi Andrew, The manual for Acer Veriton 5600 series is available at the Product User/EndUser Website (Downloads) at http://csd.acer.com.tw. The filename of the manual is VT5600series_EN_0403.pdf Re add-on video card - select video card to be used in your CMOS/BIOS. Press "Del" during the bootup process. Alternately, you casn run the built-in diagnostic to diagnose any system changtes such as an add-on video card. Re onboard soundport - try either the front or the rear line/speaker out. Verify that the drivers are properly installed in your Device Manager. By default, when you have an external speaker, the internal auto cuts-off. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Acer shut down


ok go to control panel, then power options and check that the option states that when you press the shutdown button, it powers down. You also may need to check inthe bios (F2 or Del on boot up) and go to standard cmos settings or the advanced cmos settings and see if ACPI is enabled, if not enable, then save settings and exit and a reboot will follow.
