Thread: Gigabyte EX58-DS4 Issue?

  1. #1

    Default Gigabyte EX58-DS4 Issue?

    I have posted this same question on another forum and had very little to no response...

    I recently purchased an i7 setup, and I've been using Gigabyte boards for years (approximately 6-7) and never had a problem...

    The build went just relatively smoothly... I booted into Windows for the first time and installed all the drivers from the included CD...

    Well, as soon as that was all done, my onboard NIC started going crazy!


    I restored bios defaults... Same problem.

    I poked around in the bios, found an option called "GREEN NIC" and by the description, it would appear as though the bios can automatically enable/disable the onboard NIC if it's not in use?

    Well, I sure as heck didn't want my computer having control over itself, so I left that option disabled... But still my problem persisted.

    It wasn't until I "ENABLED" the automatic control of the NIC that I was able to get a connection?

    This seems very strange to me.
    Is this a known issue?

    Is there a bios fix?

    Should I return the mainboard and get another one?

    -Thanks In Advance!

    Ignore this post... Not like any of you bothered to try to help anyways.
    I flashed the latest beta bios and my problem has disappeared.
