[DELL N5110] eSATA port Problem

HI... I m new here... so apology if Im in wrong section.

Well,
eSATA port supplied power when the laptop was off. And I could keep my phone charging even ehen the laptop was off. Some days ago, I updated BIOS and installed Windows 8. Now, eSATA port does not supply power when I power off laptop.

So please, can any one help me out ??? I really need that eSATA port feature....

Hi LonelyTANVIR,

Press F2 on start up to enter BIOS and ensure that the "USB Powershare" option under the advanced tab is enabled.

First of all, Thanks for your reply.

I did as you said. but not working. I think its because I updated BIOS. is there any way to downgrade BIOS.
