I'm experiencing problems with the Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse and Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard, both of which are bluetooth and use the bluetooth feature of the motherboard and not a proprietary dongle, and the system I have just built.

1. Moving the Surface Precision Mouse during the system sleep state does not wake the system. I have checked the Surface Precision Mouse properties, however the power option to allow the mouse to wake the system is already enabled.

2. The system is very slow to respond to input from the bluetooth Surface Ergonomic Keyboard. After booting to the Windows login screen it takes something like 15 - 30 seconds before I'm able to enter my PIN or password. If I don't use the keyboard for a while during use of the system then again it takes the system a long time, it seems, to reestablish the connection with the keyboard and process the input.

3. It seems that it's not possible to use the bluetooth Ergonomic Keyboard to navigate the BIOS.

I've searched through the BIOS settings to see if there is anything which could be configured to enable a better blutooth experience, however I have not found anything. With the Precision Mouse not waking the system it seems like the motherboard bluetooth feature might not be active when the system is sleeping. Can anybody give insights regarding these bluetooth problems? Can the BIOS be configured to resolve these problems? Might a BIOS update be needed to enable this bluetooth functionality?


WINDOWS 10 1903 (1809 HAD THE SAME SET OF PROBLEMS)
GIGABYTE AORUS Z390 PRO WIFI (BIOS F9)
INTEL i9 9900K
MICROSOFT SURFACE PRECISION MOUSE
MICROSOFT SURFACE ERGONOMIC KEYBOARD
RAID 0 SYSTEM VOLUME
RAID 1 STORAGE VOLUME
 
UPDATE: I've used Powershell to execute 'powercfg -a' which has revealed that only Standby (S3), Hibernate and Fast Startup are available on the system.

According to this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/device-experiences/modern-standby

"You cannot switch between S3 and Modern Standby by changing a setting in the BIOS. Switching the power model is not supported in Windows without a complete OS re-install."

As I understand it the AORUS Z390 PRO WIFI should feature Modern Standby as it has the Z390 chipset, however I do not know how I should configure the hardware prior to reinstalling Windows so that Modern Standby will become available.

Hey shadowsports,

thanks for the help!!

BIOS is F9.

GTX 670 is EVGA. BIOS had never been updated and was v80.04.19.0.70, so I've updated it to v80.04.5C.0.70, which I believe is the latest. Fault not resolved.

The system wasn't booting straight to the Windows login screen because of Fast Boot. Fast Boot was disabled. With the GTX 670 in the system it wasn't even possible to access the BIOS, even when attempting to access the BIOS by holding SHIFT while clicking RESTART and then opting to change the UEFI settings. It seems that skipping to the Windows login screen is related to the fault with the GTX 670.

I took the GTX 670 out of the system and started it up using the i9 9900K integrated graphics. I entered the BIOS and enabled Fast Boot, then I set VGA Support to Auto, then I reinstalled the GTX 670. The fault has still not resolved.

Incidentally, the only reason I installed the GTX 670 in the system was because it has Display Port and 2GB of dedicated memory, so my hunch was that perhaps it might still out perform the i9 integrated graphics, despite being old. Do you think there is really any benefit to the GTX 670 being in the system? The main application of the system is image processing, which doesn't even use the GPU much, it's mostly a memory and CPU task. What would you prefer for Lightroom as well as smooth system performance, GTX 670 or i9 9900K integrated graphics?

I haven't done any overclocking and I don't have any other cards I can test with.

Motherboards with AMD processors / B450 DS3H Audio interference

Hi Filks,

First post, Just set up my Motherboard, Ryzen 5 1400 and Ballistix ddr4 3000mhz system. GPU RX 570 8gb.

Getting noise through Green speaker output, sounds like usb or gpu fan noise. Only happens when gaming at all other times its fine.
I thought the audio noise guard was meant to stop this, no problems with my old gigabyte ga-970a-ud3.


Thanks.

I have installed a slightly older graphics card, nVidia GTX 670, in the AORUS Z390 PRO WIFI mainboard.

When I turn the system on the CPU and DRAM checks pass, however the VGA light on the MB remains on. The system does not boot as usual, instead the usual booting screen seems to be skipped and the first screen that appears is the Windows login screen. The BOOT LED on the MB never comes on, and the red VGA LED remains on after startup and only stops shining when the system sleeps and then remains off after the system awakes from sleep.

Once the system has started it seems to run as usual.

What could the cause of this be? Is there away I can further diagnose the problem and perhaps fix it? Or is it likely to be a BIOS firmware compatibility issue, meaning a BIOS update will be necessary?

The mainboard was is running with the latest BIOS and the graphics card has the most recent driver.

Thanks for your help :)

Thanks for the detail and system specs.  Unfortunately "latest" doesn't tell us what BIOS rev you are actually running.  F9 was released 3-15-2019.

Regardless of this, none of the BIOS revs appear to address any video compatibility issues.  Also Nvidia Gforce GTX 670 - is this an Nvidia branded card, EVGA, Gigabyte?  Nvidia makes the chip, they made a reference design single blower card too, just need to verify.

Many 670 cards had FW updates which could help if yours was one of the affected models. 

Things to look at:

See page 35 of your manual.  Enable Fast Boot in BIOS.  Now set VGA Support to Auto.  (EFI is default).  Save Exit and restart.   

-Does this system start?
-Does the VGA LED stay on?

Just to be clear on one thing, if you have Ultra Fast Boot enabled, change to Fast.. this is all you need.  It would also explain why the first screen you see is the windows log in screen. 

EFI (default) is what you want, but the card being as old as it is and with no FW update might be the cause.  If you purchase a new or different card, be sure to change this setting back to EFI.  Also change if the system won't boot.

See if there is a FW update for your specific card?

The 670 should be EFI compliant, but I cannot confirm this.  Aggressive BIOS settings, overclocking or power would be the only other areas I can think of that might cause a problem.

Do you have another card (any) that you can test with?

Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: ga 990xa ud3 rex 1.x custom bios
« Last post by regit on April 19, 2019, 07:59:45 am »
I tried to flash v7 file via QBios built-in utility - unsuccessful.(my mb rev 1.x)
QFlash cannot recognize this rom.
Only @bios utility from ms win allowed to flash this firmware.
But I encountered with process "backup bios update from main" EVERY time when i changed bios settings.

Update v7:
Updated Date:2018/02/06
CPUID:00600F20 PatchID:06000852
Updated Date:2018/02/07
CPUID:00600F12 PatchID:0600083E
Adds Spectre v2 (CVE-2017-5715) microcode-based mitigation support,
    plus other unspecified fixes/updates.

But I encountered with process "backup bios update from main" EVERY time when i changed bios settings.

It means it s flashed and worked, the main bios save setting i make it for safe.

Hello Regit,

Would you be so kind to make this modifications in the 990fxa-ud3 rev1.0 bios to have nvme boot?

Best regards,
TSoft

Sorry is inpossible, it can be done only with motherboard  support uefi bios

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: GA-Z97P-D3 doesnt turn off

If this install was migrated from another system (motherboard) and a fresh install of windows was not performed, this could be related to the behavior.
Have you tried Disabling Fast Start Up in Power options?

Yes I have.

Actually, I thing its the Cosair water cooling that migh delay complete shut off.
Because it shuts off after like 5 minutes.
But I dont know if there are any settings for this, or indicators.
