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.
Mick.

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,
Mick.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
