HI.... Soo thats the problem.....My board works great but it shutsdown completely only about 40% of the time. When it doesnt completely shut down you can hear the hard drive shutting down but the system fans and processor fans remain on???
I changed the board for a new one with the latest BIOS on it but it still does exactly the same SO THEREFORE I ASSUME IT MUST BE SOMETHING (HARDWARE) ATTACHED TO IT THAT CAUSES THIS PROBLEM????
My board is using Win XP PRO service pack 2 and all updates are applied. The hardware attached is an SCII pci card adaptor which runs two DVD burners. I have a DVD Rom drive attached via the MB on Master. A Nvidia GForce3 64Mb Ti Card and a 180Gb 7500 Deskstar HD.
I appreciate the Vid card is an old one and runs on AGP x 4 but it seem to be functioning all the time including playing games like Doom 3 and Half Life 2.
Any ideas please? I guess the Vid card is the weakest link isnt it??
