Fine, but what is the computer? There is a simple fix for Win 98/SE for most instances of this problem, but not for Me. The restart problem for Me appears to be specific to the make/model/BIOS version of the computer. Larry

"But when it came time to shutdown the thing would not shut off. It just kept rebooting into windows and the power switch would not work. I had to unplug it from the wall to get it to shut off. An update of the BIOS to v.1004 solved this problem."

"First, I'll warn you that you will be taking a chance if you flash the motherboard BIOS and you will be doing it at your own risk. If something goes wrong (e.g., a power outage) during this process you could end-up with an unbootable motherboard. If that happens you will have to find someone with the equipment to flash the BIOS, obtain another BIOS, or buy a new motherboard. I've done it many times without a problem. Someday it's going to get me."

If this indeed is what is wrong with the board it is absolutely beyond my understanding how any kind of quality assurance would allow the board to come to market. The obvious answer is there was no quality assurance or any kind of reasonable testing! I would really like to know if this fixed it. How do you like the DDR memory? Fast? Larry

I have allready flashed the bios larry
With no results I have found that most online sellers will send you a product even if it is defective.
and swear it was ok when it left them as for ddr ram i was able to tell a noticable increase in overall system performance
Thanks for the help Greg
