Don't be suprised if there is some lack of power in your system. I'm aware that this may look silly, but from my experience with this board while changing locations and movin' in to another city, I experianced many sys disfunctions in relation with the general electrical current quaility on thoes locations, so mabe it is yours power supply. Whel this applies on my country, witch is Croatia in Europe where we depend on mercy of ours local 'monopolistic' general infrastructure service providers, as we only recently have accepted on repubic level a law concernig protection of consumers rights. But aside of that, many glitches concernig this board still remain a mistery to me. Allthoe I think of myself as an XP in Hware. But all thoes old legacy industry standards implemented in our BIOS OS-es in PC-s declared by IBM PC AT/ATX architecture standards offers to many companys witch produce hardware especially MB-os a way to implement new technologies in a disrespectfull way towards us, the end users. This may seam disscouraging, but it just may be that without any previous clear announcments our hardware industries are sometimes leavin' us without proper support by implemeting tech.-s with dissregard to declared standards. I'm havin' second thougts 'bout posting this reply concernin' my gramar (haha) and as it overcomes your problem witch also could be mine. So I'll post it as a reply and as a new topic. And as a third thought, maybe we should all get and IBM ACE degree, concerning our efforts to put theirs crapy products to work. Or I am just an daydreamin', ethousiastic amater.
