Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA Driver
I have an old Dell Dimension E running bit Windows Vista. How do I find out if the PCIe bus on the E is V1.x or V? On the Missing: NVIDIA. The Dell Dimension series was a line of home and business desktop computers manufactured The E, E and C were re-introduced under the Inspiron line under the names Inspiron Integrated NVIDIA GeForce SE, VTB G, PCI, PCI Express (x1, x16), SATA, cm, cm, cm, kg ( lb). I was motivated to try OSX86 on my old Dell Dimension C, which SATA Controller/Motherboard: nForce4 SATA controller with a 80GB.

View All Add an attachment proposed patch, testcase, etc. Description Nacho de los R Distribution and mainline kernels above 2. Compiled for i and K7, with and without SMP. The USB mouse pointer freezes, while using it, after a while.
The keyboard keeps working, screen output is unaffected. Happens in X, but also in a text console when running gpm. Unplugging the mouse, then plugging it back regains control of the pointer, but only for a while.
The freezing of the pointer is not detected Unplugging and replugging is detected Upon replugging, a new USB device is added, with a higher number than before. The combo mouse was frozen.
The wired mouse freezes. I unplug and replug the wired mouse, and these lines are added to dmesg output: USB disconnect, address 15 [ After a while, it freezes, so I now choose to unplug the Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA combo: USB disconnect, address 8 [ USB disconnect, address 16 [ Comment 2 Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA de los R However, if the mouse and keyboard are plugged into a hub, instead of directly into the PC, then they work OK when the system boots.
I have not had the chance to test this but for a very short period of time, so I cannot say that they won't lock later on, but I'll test more and then report my findings. If anybody listening would like me to do any concrete tests and post any concrete results, please, ask me. Comment 3 Nacho de los R Comment 4 Walter R.

Comment 5 Chris Carlin The poster indicated that this was managed by the kernel, which seems fishy to me. Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA this is confirmed by plugging the mouse into external, powered USB hubs. Since they have their own power source the lockups don't occur. Comment 6 Nacho de los R Power is definitely not the problem. With just a keyboard and a mouse plugged in the USB ports or even with just a receiver from a combothe problem happens, and the system does not have to be doing anything intensive at all -- unless moving the pointer about is too much work for an Athlon X2 to handle.
And how come when the keyboard and the mouse were two different USB devices the keyboard keept working and only the Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA freezed, and then came back to life after replugging? Comment 7 Chris Carlin But then, I know next to nothing about the inner workings of USB. For all I know some particular work of the machine causes it through software or hardware to lower power delivered to the USB bus. Whatever the reason, though, I have verified the suggested workaround of operating through a powered USB hub.
Others have claimed that unpowered hubs don't fix the problem, which lends support to the whole power management theory.

Dell Dimension C521 NVIDIA SATA But again, I'm not in any way claiming that to be the actual cause. I'm only repeating a theory suggested elsewhere. Comment 8 Nacho de los R There is no way that power could fail to the mouse but not to the keyboard, but still the mouse pointer freezes while the keyboard keeps working. And, as you say, if I plug the receiver into a hub, then there is no mouse lockup. And If I plug a second mouse when the first one freezes, the second mouse works perfectly for a while, which would indicate it is receiving enough power.
And if the two mice are plugged in since the beginning, only the one in actual use freezes, and the other keeps working for a while after the first one has locked up. If you know nothing about the internal workings of the USB, rest assured that it provides far more power than enough for one mouse and one keyboard.
If you don't trust me, google for the specs.
