APM

By john.cb1 ·
I have got a new motherboard as it crashed on me last night.

However I am having problems shutting of Windows Xp Professional. Let me explain I have got a AMD 1.3 ghz processor fitted onto the new motherboard. The bloke who did it for me and did a repair on the Windows Xp so I would not have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall my software. When I come to shut it down it shuts down but gives me the message that it is save to turn my computer off and does not turn my computer or screen of for me.

I have checked in the Power options Scheme to see if there is a Advanced Power Management(APM) in and there is not.

Do you think that Windows Xp still thinks it is running the old motherboard.

What do you suggest?

John
