    I just built up a new system that consist of a AMD Athalon 64 3400+
    Socket 754 Abit KV8 pro motherboard 1 gig of pc 2700 ram (1 kingston
    one unknown) which is going to be replaced with 3200 cosair, ATI
    Radeon 9600, Sound Blaster Live 5.1, and a Hitachi SATA drive. The
    problem is I can't get Windows XP pro sp2 to pick up the board as
    ACPI. I have tried reflashing the cmos to the current build 19 from
    abit and installing all the current chipset and raid drivers from via
    and still no luck. What am I missing, I have built several pcs before
    and it was always turned on automatically. I have gone through the
    bios a ton and haven't found anything to enable it. Please help.

    I figured it out or I should my pc told me the hard way. My 320 watt
    power supply turned out to be too weak on the 12 volt output and
    burned itself out this morning. A new 430 watt power supply and
    system os reinstall and all is well.
