For ACPI support under Windows 2000, be sure your BIOS has been updated to the latest version. Please note that some of the EOL boards and all boards with 1MB BIOS will not support ACPI and can not run Windows 2000.
Jumpers settings onboard may need to be changed according to the User's Manual, or according to the "Jumpers" section on this website.
Double check to see if each of the peripherals are seated properly, that includes microprocessor (CPU), memory (DIMM), video card, etc. Re-seating them may produce different results.
Verify that your power supply is plugged in and switched on (also check for the on/off switch on the back of the chassis), and select the proper voltage depending on your geographical region (115/120 for US; 220/230 for Europe)? CAUTION: For Europe residents, if the power supply is set for 115/120 volts and it has been accidentally plugged into a 220/230 volts power outlet, the system may have sustained permanent damage. In that case, please consult your vendor for part(s) replacement.
Some problems and/or conflicts can be resolved simply by flashing the BIOS to the latest version, which can be downloaded from this website. If the onboard BIOS chip is corrupted or damaged, please submit a request to Tech Support.
* Make sure your BIOS configured to default settings.
* Make sure the drivers installed for any peripheral are of the latest versions released by the corresponding vendor.
Windows may be using outdated drivers from an old setup or an old motherboard. These older drivers may be causing problems or conflicts in your current system. The most effective method to update all drivers is to perform a reinstallation of Windows on a newly formatted hard drive.
WARNING: Only experienced personnel should perform reinstallation as data loss may be possible.
If the same problem persists as the system runs and you are not sure which component is at fault, Please inspect each of them:
If there are extra peripherals or components, please replace each component one by one to determine the corrupted device.
