I was recently using my Gateway desktop and the power in the whole house went out for about 10 seconds. I left the PC off for about 10 mins but when I turned it on, the light on the power button fades in and out constantly like it's hibernating or something. But it still boots up and loads Windows 7 fine. Except all USB peripherals and PCI wireless card have no power. Same thing happens in safe mode. But they do work outside of the OS (like I can use the keyboard to enter the bios but once Windows loads, the keyboard turns off).

The suggestions that other people gave me haven't helped resolve the problem yet.

Hopefully the power surge didn't fry something on your mb...

Wish I could offer more suggestion... :)

I don't think it's a hardware problem. All devices work fine in other operating systems including a separate Windows 7 partition.
