    Any Reset tool for PCI Bus out there in the wild ?

    Karlosdallos

      I do have recently som Probs with my tv card.

       

      I think the pci bus got an hiccup ?

       

      Suddenly the card is up again (on what?)

      after booting up the mainboards uefi (dont know what file)

       

      i guess the mobo is resetted by this ????

       

      mobo is from msi H67 chipset.

       

      No i am up to create a linux life cd , may be this -next time- does it as well ?

       

      thanx in advance

          Hello!

           

          We do not have a tool to reset PCI bus.  If you are having problems with that MSI motherboard I recommend contacting MSI to see if they can run a diagnostic on it that can help to determine the issue. 

           

          Thanks!!

            Hi FredI might have found the solution for my Prob (may be it helps the other TV - Card / Sound card users).

             

            I set the (windows 7) energy - option :
            PCI express -> "Verbindungszustandsverwaltung" (in german) -> OFF

             

            Befor i had (one of my energy schemes) set it different (might have been "medium or maximum")

            May be the card or its driver (or any chips communication between) was not able to reactivate the card to "active mode".

             

            It might be work for a "laboratory" to examine !!??

            There are a lot user out, reporting such Probs.

             

            regards

             

            Oh: By the way: Is there a tool out which can wake up (for sure) PCI connected devices?
