    Lightbulb Re: Z77 Extreme4 having issues with add-on cards

    Hi All,

    Just thought I'd post an update.

    I was having issues coming out of hibernation as well. Often, the system would start, but then leave me no signal going to the monitor. A reset would restart the resume from hibernation after asking if I wanted to do this, and 75% of the time, it would resume fine.

    Anyway, I decided to move my video card into the top PCI-e x16 slot (Don't really like it here, as I have cooked a TV tuner card before with heat from the video card) and the hibernation issues seemed to vanish.

    For some reason, I decided to turn on 'require a password when resuming' and then not long after, out of habit, I put the PC to sleep, rather than hibernate.

    To my surprise, both tuner cards were still there.

    I have no problems with the tuner cards and sleep now.

    I will try moving the video card back to the bottom PCI-e x16 slot and see if the problem is still resolved or not.

    I am having similar problems.
    I have only one card, a compro e750 dual tuner in pcie-1 (slot position 2 on z77 extreme4-m).
    When coming out of sleep or hibernate I lose the th tuner regularly which is a real nuisance as it it a HTPC, never know if it is going to record scheduled tv programs.
    Any suggestions to fix this?

    Have you tried the requiring a password when resuming from sleep? This is what got my issue fixed.

    Your fix reminds me of an issue with a board I have with the P67 chipset, it fails to wake from Sleep. I (and others) never figured it out, but one hint was a few Windows log entries that mentioned a driver "not responding" within a certain time frame, and the Power Ok signal from the PS was out of the standard ATX response range (to slow.) In this situation no video would be active, although it seemed the PC was otherwise active, to the extent a press of the Reset key would bring us back to the pre-Sleep desktop.

    It seems that the password read/verify program is run before anything wake-from-Sleep occurs within Windows (which makes sense) which allows whatever is slow to "wake up", PS, TV card, etc.
