    From my earlier posts you will see I had probs with error messages in Event Viewer on start up , which an updated Bios has cured.The thing is now when I shut down and later start up pc I have to turn off and then on the power switch at the back of pc,where as before I just pushed power switch on front panel of pc,any comments.
    Cheers.

    ACPI and/or APM services are installed during setup... It's my guess there's been a substantial change in that department with the new bios flash and the only cure may be a clean installation.

    Dispondent

    I have only XP upgrade,didn't think you can do clean install with it,I have been in touch with Abit tech and they advised me to discharge CMOS which I did but it made no difference,I am getting dispondent with this prob,wish I had never bothered with upgrade now.
    Cheers,
