    Solution is a BIOS upgrade or firmware upgrade from Steljes:

    SMART Technologies, industry leader in interactive whiteboard technology, the SMART Board

    Download the latest firmware for the board version 4.4 and the problem (according to Steljes) is gone.

    Hope that helps.
    Tried that, still had a problem

    Sorry! I'll tell them.

    Then it is a BIOS upgrade which is dependant on Motherboard manufacturer.

    Please leave it with me and I will get back to you when I have an answer.

    Hi Acer-man,

    Is there any progress on this issue? I have 6 AcerPower F6 machines to rollout. 3 of them will be OK as they connect to Mimio whiteboard devices which do not have this problem, but the other three will connect to Smart Board SB680 devices which do exhibit this problem. I could not find the firmware upgrades on the Steljes url you previously published in this thread. I have written to Smart support desk but they have yet to come back with a solution. The workaround is to unplug the Smartboard during the boot-up process and to plug it back in, but this is tiresome for the teaching staff.

    How do I go about getting the powered hubs at 10p each?

    Regards

    Guru

    The powered hubs for 10p each were being sold as part of this promo.

    Did you buy your machines from this promo?

    Opps!!! Sorry.. I was so focused on the issue about Smart boards that I never even looked at the dates on the posts!! My apologies and thanks for the very prompt response!!

    Regarding the Smartboard issue, is the powered hub the only solution right now?

    Regards
