I installed a PCI-e Express USB 3.0 HOST CARD in my hp/Compaq dc5700. It works fine and is very fast. My problem is that since I installed it my computer, my computer wont shut down. I go to shut down ,hit that, it shuts down and then It restarts every time. I looked for solutions online but to no avail. After researching the problem for 2 days I uninstalled the PCI-e Express USB 3.0 HOST CARD and now the computer shuts down like it is supposed to. Does anyone have an Idea what could cause this effect? Thanks J
