Question about Intel Motherboard
Electricity prices are going way up. I set my Power Options for my PCs to go into "System Standby" after 30 minutes.
This works well except for my external SATA hard drive (the SATA external connector is on the motherboard and not an add-in card). That drive disappears from "My Computer" when I wakeup the system. The OS is Windows XP sp2. The only way I can see this drive again is to reboot. That makes this external hard drive fairly useless.
Seagate Seatools boot CD says there is no problem with this Seagate external drive. Device Manager looks fine. The latest 1226 motherboard BIOS and Intel 126.96.36.1993 drivers are installed. I tried several BIOS changes with no luck. My C drive is also SATA (Western Digital WD3200YS SATA) but that has no issue waking up. For safety, I do have write caching disabled on this external hard drive.
Any ideas on what might fix this issue on the external SATA drive?
All in one !!!
This device will switch off all devices connected to it (including your hard drive) at the same time as your pc is switched off.
There are other models available.
