Since installing win98 in the control panel/ device manager on my computer a yellow exclamation point shows up
next to advanced power management support in the system devices part. Has anyone else had this problem
and if so whats the cure. As I say this didn't happen until I upgraded to 98 from 95 osr2. Other than that everything in 98 seems to be cool so far.

Have you tried removing the device and then restarting win98 and let it put it back in?

To use power management, you must have a computer that is set up by the manufacturer to support these features. For more information, see your computer documentation.

Well majus I've done as you said and just removed the culprit and restarted and windows
didn't even bother reinstalling it so as far as I am concerned it's fixed. Guess this was something that I didn't really need anyway as I'm not totally sure what it was for to start with, maybe it is a feature for notebooks? Anyway thanks and I'll award you points if I can figure out how to do it ;-)  
 clancyo, I guess since the above reply seemed to have fixed the problem I didn't get to use your advice but I thank you just the same.

Make sure that powere management is enabled in your bios. If windows doesn't detect functionality for power management then it will show an error and give you the exclamation point.

Then again, if you removed it and don't need it, it's fixed.

Good Luck.

I experienced this problem. Turning on Power Management in CMOS worked.
