Hi, I bought a EiioX SATA 2nd 2.5'' Hard Drive Caddy for my Asus K55a. It works fine in that I can see and use the 2nd hdd however it will not shut down properly the screen just stays blank but powered on so I have to hold down the power button to turn it off. Any suggestions? thank you

Did you try to removing the 2nd HDD to see if the shutdown issue still occurs. Installing a 2nd HDD should not affect how the computer shutsdown.

Yes, if I take out the 2nd HDD it all shuts down fine. I have currently removed it until I find a solution as I can't work with it not shutting down properly. I have put it in and taken it out several times and everytime it is in there it won't shut down properly but it never happens when it's not in there.

Thanks

Have you tried installing the 2nd HDD and going into the BIOS and reset it to factory defaults? Try and see if that helps.
