Hi!

I have this problems too on one of my two pentium machines.
They have exactly (mostly) the same software-configuration, differing only in
motherboard (one is an ASUS P24XE, with no problems, the other is an ASUS
P24N which causes (probably) the problems). Perhaps this might be a BIOS
problem? (the P24XE has 1.13, the P24N has 2.01, both are PNP-Versions)

hope this helps to track down the bug.

Richard.
