I have a new motherboard on the way a GA 7DXR. When I get it I will be re-installing Win2k. When I do this should I install it without ACPI support?

This PC is my first and only experience with Win2k and I am getting spontainious re-boots ocassionaly. I believe I'm having mother board problems for other reasons. I'm wondering if I'll be missing anything special, besides the ACPI power features, if I disable ACPI support.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Clovis

when i installed as standard computer the IRQ's were different, and needed to be manually fixed in one case.
also the auto power off on shutdown or hibernate didnt work.

i doubt that random lockups are a result of APCI.


I'll respect your comments & opinions, even if i disagree with them, Provided you display maturity.

I actually just reinstalled Win2K without ACPI support, and it fixed ALL of my random reboot/lockup problems. You can in fact regain the ability to shut down your PC automatically by setting "Enable Advanced Power Management Support" under the power options tab in the control panel. Just be aware that you may need to set some IRQ's manually. Have fun!
