Advanced Power Management - Code 10

By jguerndt ·
I have an exclamation point on the Advanced Power Management support in system devices. Properties reports a Code 10. I tried to update the driver & it reports I have the best one. What is the problem?? I found this because suddenly I tried installing an application for a program & find that it seems like the CDRom & the hard drive are using the same DMA or buss. It takes forever. I tried reloading windows 98SE & it worked just fine. Any other CDROM use takes too long!! Do I have two problemsor are they related? I await the cure.
Thank You;

I have an ATX board, Pentium II, 133mhz, 192meg of Ram. The primary CD is a HP 9500 burner and the other CD is an older Creative 32x. Both have worked fine for years. Why did the Windows 98SE re-install work perfectly & other CD program installs crawl? The re-install brought APM back (I deleted it) with an exclamation point. I don't know if this is a source of my troubles.
Thanks again

Just delete it. Your motherboard is old and it does not support APm, it won't do any harm to you. Does your cdrom and cdwriter connected on the same ide cable or one of them connected with the hard disk? If so, just connect the hard disk by itself.You should clean both cd drives with a cd cleaner.The above problems are not related.

Thanks for the response. I will delete APM. The cdroms are on the same ide cable. The hard drive is on it's own. Just the other day I updated my BIOS & now it is working a lot better. I also added more memory. It still gets a little crowded sometimes. I guess I have to live with it or update the board. Thanks again for your help.
I have a friend that lives in Nelson, NZ. My dream is to retire there. Jack
