    Hi. Just wondering, could it be a failed/failing/problem USB port on your printer?

    Okay...it looked as if it was connected with a USB cable. Was just a thought. Usually, as you said, I just delete these things and move on, but you appear to have a different problem.

    Np. Sometimes you can go into the settings and tell the computer never to sleep the USB, and that keeps it live all the time. But it sure would help to identify what is having the problem and why!

    Z can I ask a question about flasing the Bios ?
    I have tried a number of times without success to flash my Bios to the F12 version.
    What happens is that after booting I receive the error message of a checksum error. I have per the instructions for the Q-Flash program to selected Load Optimized Defaults in the Bios setup upon reboot.

    Am I correct in thinking that the new Bios I am trying to load must not agree with the existing CMOS memory?
    If that is the case would I be wrong/or helpful to power down my Desktop and remove the CMOS battery then after a little time reinstall the battery and try flasing again ?

    Also I is it ok to flash from F5 to F12 in one fell swoop ?

    Resetting the BIOS is useful to ensure that there are no improper settings.
    Sometimes there can be failure to boot after resetting the bios.
    Backup the computer files to another drive or to the cloud.
    Make a backup image using Macrium:

    Upgrading the BIOS can often be done by skipping upgrade versions.
    Gigabyte displays two versions of EP45-UD3R: version 1.0 and 1.1
    Which version is in use?
    Both display the same BIOS upgrade sequence.
