    S3 or power off...same thing happens. Now I have it on optimal defaults, it seems to be behaving...we'll see.
    I'm very close to just RMAing the board, but really don't want to go through the hassle of reloading XP and all the software. If there were some way to remove the chipset drivers, etc. and then load the new drivers once I get the new board so that I could just leave the O/S and applications in place, I would change the board in a heartbeat.

    Well if you get the same exact board you wont have any of those issues. Just plug in the new board and go.

    As for switching board models and keeping the same install. It can be done, but it never suggested. What you would do it just plug the drive into the new board, and if it is going to work for you in this case windows would load and then start installing drivers automatically, and new devices (Same devices again reallY) and ask you to update a few. Which you would then at that time let it do its' thing,but close all the windows that are asking for your input. Then install The chipset drivers, reboot and go into device manager and update any drivers that are left after that

    Like I said, it can be done and easily often times. But generally leaves the system a mess, and it is always best to do a clean install

    Yeah, that was my thought, too. I'll see if I can stabilize this silly thing. If not, I'll have to go through the entire software load again with a new motherboard.
