    Yup, it does look that way.

    What hardware have you changed in your PC?

    Have you installed the motherboard drivers from the CDROM that shipped with the motherboard? Lack of those drivers is the usual reason for this sort of error.

    Hrary.

    I think some people study to pass which is bad and some people study to learn and understand the skills needed to be a tech.

    I'd second that as very true and that's what we should all be doing learning to retain the info and put it into practice.

    Should just be a matter of downloading the drivers from the mobo manufacturer, installing them, and rebooting. I do this at least ten times a week.

    Someone comes for help and all of a sudden it becomes another 'yawn' 'you should study properly' thread ???

    As for OP ; listen to neutralhills, just get drivers reinstall them and you should be ok.

    Yep! If the drivers are the right ones, that'll fix the problem, every time.

    Yes, but along with the slights, there are also many posts, including your own, giving the perfect remedy.

    The OP has recieved some brilliant advice over the three years he has been posting on this forum.

    Just a further thought... If you're having trouble identifying the specific mobo, I recommend AIDA32:

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download181.html

    It will help you identify the particulars of the motherboard so you can go to the manufacturer's site and download everything in one shot. I find this to be less work that identifying the individual components (Audio, Video, Network, etc.) and then going to multiple sites for them.

    In my case, what I also do is save a copy of all the downloads on my fileserver and name the directory they're in with the mobo manufacturer name and mainboard number. This way, I can use Google Desktop Search to see if I've already downloaded the files before as I tend to run into the same mobos over and over again. It's a time saver.

    I also have a paid membership at DriverGuide.com -- it's a site that I find myself using extensively. Easier than trying to hunt down older, obscure drivers that are no longer supported.
