Windows 7: PCI Shutdown Hang

10 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64
PCI Shutdown Hang

When Windows 7 shuts down and gets to the "Shutting Down Screen", i hear my second hard disk spin-up if its turned itself off (I have OS on 1 disk, and my docs on another) and then windows just sits on this screen until I have to manually power off. After doing some research, it appears to be caused by a cheap PCI to USB card I have. I badly need those extra USB ports and dont rly want to spend on a new one just for the sake of having to manually switch off my computer, so am trying to find a workaround at the minute. Note - I dont have this problem when I boot up in Vista Ultimate.

What I've tried so far, is running gpedit.msc, then going Userconfiguratoin --> Windows settings --> Scripts --> Logoff.

Ive written a .bat file that tries to stop all of the usb services on my computer at logoff. The file reads:
net stop "usbuhci"
net stop "usbehci"
net stop "usbohci"
net stop "AmUStor"
net stop "usbhub"

Ive then told windows to run that script at logoff to try and stop the USB devices from doing anything, but it hasnt worked. Ive tried the same thing, but with the file add as part of the shutdown process (so if in gpedit.msc you went Computerconfiguratoin --> Windows Settings --> Scripts --> Shutdown, and did the same thing there).

Anyone have any ideas for other things I could try? Or add to that script?
