ACPI / SHUTDOWN PROBLEM
Posted on 2007-10-20
I have the dreaded "It is now safe to turn off your computer" message on shutdown. I have a K7VT4A Pro with latest BIOS from ASROCK (1.80) and XP SP2B Home installed. The board is supposed to be ACPI compliant but only shows as Standard PC in the Device Manager.
1. I have tried the F5 option during install - only Standard PC option available.
2. I have tried showing hidden devices in Device Manager and searched for the options in the various Microsoft articles... they are not available.
3. There is no APM tab in Power Options.
4. There are no ACPI adjustable options with the BIOS so nothing to change there.
Can anyone help please?
