    I have installed Windows 2000 Pro on a server with a Tyan Thunder K7X
    (S2468) motherboard.
    I keep getting a "Other PCI Bridge Device" message on startup. I
    cannot find any chipset drivers on Tyan's site that fixes this
    Anyone else run into this and found a solution?

    In addition to all chipset, board drivers, are you sure everything
    connected to the board has an up to date, Win2k Pro driver?

    Found the solution - it was a power management driver. Found the right
    driver on AMD's website

    Well I found and installed it and it resolves the problem with the
    device. Any idea what the device is supposed to do?

    AFAIK, it's, uhm, power management. The "green" stuff -- hibernate,
    standby, and like that. FAIK I figure anyway.

    Thanks that's about what I figured too. Doesn't seem to be any effect
    here (S2466) with it on or off that I can see anyway.

    There are also options in the bios (s2462 anyway). I assume OS
    environment software takes precedence -- in Windows there are options
    from the Power button on the Screen Saver tab of Display Properties.

    The various modes, on wake up, lock up my system -- I assume I have one
    or more expansion cards that are not conforming to the standard.

    Option settings haven't had any noticeable effect at all on my S2466. I
    had been hoping that I'd get this windows2000 machine to power down on
    exit which I never did get to work when it was on a S2460.
