I just built my new computer. I installed my printer drivers and hooked it up. When I unplugged the USB cable that hooks the printer to my computer, my computer immediately shut off. The printer was still on.
The computer doesn't shut off when I unplug the USB cord and the pritner is off. This doesn't seem normal that my ocmputer should shut off just b/c the printer is on. I did this with my other computer and it didn't shut off.
Any ideas why this is happening?
Also, I installed a firewire PCI card onto my motherboard. When I finished, my computer wouldnt turn on. I turned off my power surge protector (this is what my computer is plugged into) and turned it back on thent he ocmputer would turn on. But when it came on it said CMOS Checksum Bad - F1 to run setup, F2 to restore default values.
I tried F1 and everyhting in the BIOS and CMOS looked normal (althoguh I don't kwno much abotu BIOS or CMOS). I hit ESC and Windows started. The next tiem I restarte dmy PC, the same CMOS error came up, but this time I hit F2. Things seem to be ok now, but I'm wodnering, what caused CMOS Checksum Bad?
