I just installed Windows 7 on my DP45SG motherboard, but I'm experiencing a wierd issue when the computer is inactive for 20 minutes and go to sleep mode... When i move the mouse, the PC powers up, but there is no output on the monitor or similar... Pressing the reset button seems to be the solution, the the PC restarts with windows ("Windows resuming....")
I have another PC with the DG965WH motherboard - and on this host (with the same power-settings in windows), I never experienced this problem...
Could it be related to a BIOS setting ?
i had the same problem... do you have other extension cards than the primary graphics card installed? if yes, then try if the problem persists if you remove them. if this is the case, try another slot then. (my soundcard was the problem - moving it to another slot was the solution. (in fact the motherboard is rather the problem, didn't had that much problems with a piece of hardware anyway...))
I, too, have this problem... but it's not isolated to just Windows 7. I'm using Vista Business Premium... same problem. I only have one card on my DP45SG and it's my PCIe video card (EVG GeForce 9600GT). Never had this problem on any of my other Intel mobo's... this is frustrating beyond belief. I'm using the following hardware:
I'm looking here on INTEL.COM to see what, if anything I can do to resolve this issue.
I have run into this problem too. I'm currently using BIOS 0083, but I'm going to update to 0121 in the next couple of days. My memory & power supply are as follows:
RAM: 4GB (2x2GB) Patriot "Eased Memory" PC3-12800 DDR3-1600Mhz
Power Supply: 680W BFG power supply (I don't recall the model)
I have found a way to work around the problem for now (namely by disabling "Sleep" mode and having the machine go into "Hibernation" mode instead). This keeps the problem from happening, but it is by no means ideal. If anyone has a solution to the problem (rather than a way to work around it) I would LOVE to know what it is!
yes, me too. Only card is 9800gt+. It seems that if the machine hasn't been asleep for too long, pressing a key brings it back to life quickly but if it's been a while the reset button is necessary. This is a real annoyance. I don't want to have to change the board to fix it.
That is a DP45SG Motherboard problem that not even the manufactures INTEL can't sort out. You are still lucky that you get that M/b going. I have the same crappy m/b. Mine does not even get to point of swiching the video card on. It Post and then nothing is happening. I test all my components on another m/b and all is working fine, but not on the DP45SG. I warrantee swop the m/b 3 times now but still it does not post. I got myself now the newest PSU 500Watt Ver 2.3, new DDR3 1333 Ram a smaller video card, smaller processor but with no success it just does not want to boot up. I have now almost enough parts for another PC and still don't have a PC that works. And what INTEL SUPPORT tells me is that it is a component problem. THAT MAKES ME SICK TO THE STOMICK. You spend so much money to buy INTEL and then u get such a **** Product with absolutely no support. Can't they just acknowlage that this M/b is a problem and swop it out for something else that works.
your problem could be the setting for virtualization in the Bios. The sleep mode did work fine on my DP45SG until i did activate
virtualization mode in the bios settings. Until then, after going to suspend mode, i had to either switch off the PC or press the reset button.
After disabling the virtualization option in the bios settings behaviour is like expected.
