    THAT time the BIOS flashed OK.... and booted up into WindowsME fine.... I then shut down... and reset the BIOS (via the jumper) and the restart worked OK .....

    Don't know what was going on......

    I have 2 HDD on my Primary IDE cable (one master, one slave)... I'm mainly using the slave as a ghost image of the master in case something bad happens with the master drive I can restore from the slave.... however I was thinking of booting up w/o the slave being recognized by WindowsME (via the BIOS by setting the Primary IDE Slave drive from "Auto" to "None" in the ABIT BIOS..... anyone know if this would cause problems during a restart??? (That is, having a powered HDD connected to the IDE cable but not being detected by the BIOS).... would this cause problems when the PC restarts? as opposed to shutting down and powering back up again???

    Thanks again.....

    If nothing else works you can have a new bios chip kit sent to you by contacting www.unicore.com/biosupgrades.

    I think I resolved the issue....

    Originally I attempted to flash (unsuccessfully) the 64 ABIT BIOS .... when that produced problems I thought there was something wrong with the BIOS and backed down a version to 4A, 3C, etc. ..... however it seems that even during a successfull flash of 4A, or 3C it still wouldn't work because I was attempting to back up to an earlier BIOS....

    When I got a clean boot (no funky stuff... like no keyboard present etc...) I re-flashed the 64 BIOS successfully.... and the issue seems to have gone away.... (crossing my fingers).... :)

    hi;

    for all win versions,you can do this:

    open regedit.
    look for this key:

    hkey local machine
    then
    software
    microsoft
    windows
    current...
    on the right , right click and choose new dword value
    name it as : cachewritedelay
    give this line the decimal number 2000

    this will do this.
    you choose to shutdown windows..the faster the cpu the faster it will do the shuttdown...
    the problem occurs when not all the started programs have been closed before windows exactly have shutted down.
    so the decimal 2000 will let windows have 2 seconds to completely clear the ram to after that shuttdown..

    it works all the time.
    and this will help 2:
    the same time you ad the cachewritedelay
    goto
    the key
    local user
    software
    microsoft
    windows
    current...
    now not in the root
    but the key undernead this current

    explorer
    and then on the right you will find shuttdown setting
    the number there is must be changed as 0

    then you can restart youre pc and test the settings.

    this will do no harm.

    if the system still does wrong at shutdown
    then try to run msconfig
    startup folder to take some out.
    then the first time you reboot make sure you test all things you need so you dant set off things you raelly need.

    i hope it will help you all out the problems
