Hi

I have formatted my C drive and installed all relevant drivers and flash etc, which I have done before and remember updating my Bios to make the system work as it should...
The current version is 1.2 P

The problem I have at the moment is that I can NOT send the system to sleep and reboot correctly !

The mother board is
ASRock
Model : AM2NF6G-VSTA
Socket: AM2
http://www.asrock.com/support/download.asp?Keyword=am2nf6g-vsta&Type=MB&Socket=AM2&Model=AM2NF6G-VSTA

I would like to update the lot, but find it a bit confusing with the fact that;
1: I am running Window 7 and they only show up to vista (which is compatible with some things)
2: which version to go for ! jump to the latest or update in order ?

Also I have been to their forum and the link is as follows, its bl**dy confusing any idea which drivers I need ??
http://forums.ocworkbench.com/showthread.php?s=0502d60ae64ecf122169cfd05dd33d2c&t=108980

Thanks for you help in advance..

Zaidy

Zaidy, with the updates for the bios, you should be able to just flash the latest BIOS update available, there should be no need to do incremental updates (unless it explicitly states so in the update package). Depending on how old the M/B is, the manufacturers may have stopped supporting it for Win 7. If that is the case, try the vista comaptible bios update, and you might find it still works okay...

Regarding the sleep/reboot problem, what is it doing? do you have specific buttons to command this, or are you using the Windows functions to command it? If it is specific buttons (eg on the machine/moptherboard, or on your keyboard for example) check they are mapped correctly (in the power settings in control panel, or on the keyboard settings in the control panel).

If it is windows software that is not working properly, the bios update should sort that out...

Thanks for you advice Stubbsy !! Suspect

And many thanks Andy for your sensible answer, I have updated the Bios today to version 2.3 which sorted the sleep problem out, however I have a couple of external hard drives that are NOT showing up on the "my computer" screen !! tried to look it up on line but no joy !!

The Hard drive does not show on my device manager screen and I am lost !!!

First of all, try plugging them into a different USB port (presuming they are connected via a USB connection). that might sort it. If not, and if you have upgraded your operating system, you may need to install new drivers for your External hard disks.

If that isn't the issue, then check the BIOS settings for external drives, it may have acquired a funky setting in the update....
