View Full Version : winxp shutdown problem

Hi all...

i have a gigabyte (k8nnxp) motherboard and when i installed the DPS (dual power supply) card the pc restarts everytime i wanted to shutdown, I just cant shut down at all. If i take the DPS card out it works normally.

Is there a way that i can install the DPS and get it to shutdown properlly?? I've looked into the bios and cant seems to see any thing relate to the DPS & power...shutdown...etc...

Disable Automatic Restart so you geta BSOD and an error message to get closer to the cause.

Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and Recovery - untick Automatically Restart.

from what i see on the site its some sort of extra power regulator on a daughter card. why it would cause shutdown problems i have no idea.

see what error message you get (if any) first.

otherwise the only thing i can think of at the mo is thats its a power managment problem. try this.... install the card, check all bios settings )exspecially all power and acpi) then insert XP pro cd and perform an UPGRADE.

also what power supply are you useing ??

I think its something to do with the power management and bugs in the bios. no luck with ur solution either tweak'e. maybe my best bet is to update my bios and see what happens.
