Next time you're debugging, could you check the PCI/OnBoard Setup menu (or whatever your BIOS uses) and see if there is an option called "Reset PNP Config Data" or "Force Updating ESCD", which defaults to "Disabled" but if you set it to Enabled will "... clear ESCD data netxt time you boot up, and ask BIOS to reset the settings for the Plug and Play ISA card and PCI Card ..." You could also use a more brute-force approach and remove the CMOS battery, which would lose your clock and some settings, but would ensure there's no bogus slot config data. Hey, what BIOS do you have, anyway? I can't believe I'm awake at 06:30 poring over old Motherboard manuals with interest :-) There's 4-6 inches of snow, and my first consulting client of the day is at the top of a hill. I sure hope they have plowed the snow :-) Regards, Marty --- Name: Martin D. Connor US Mail: Entity Cyber, Inc.; P.O.
