FIC AD11 mobo problems
I have an FIC AD11 mobo with an AMD 1600+ XP prcessor and 128MB DDR RAM. I ordered all the parts and put the machine together myself (my first) and at first had some problems with the video freezing and/or the machine locking up. I was able to get the OS (Windows Me) loaded with some effort, but continued to have problems and realized that the mobo was bad. I had it replaced and put all the components on the new board. I am going to format the HD and put a fresh load on, but I wanted to get everything working and the bugs worked out first so I can get a really good load. I am in Germany and have to figure out the best way to load the software for internet access with out German-izing my machine. Anyway, the machine seems to run well now, but if I shut it down and then try to power it back up again soon it won't start back up--it just hangs. It isn't even making it all the way through POST. I have to shut it down with the switch on the power supply because the power and reset button won't even respond. If I just select restart from Windows it will restart fine, but not if I select shut down and then decide to turn it back on. It happened again tonight when it had been shut down for over an hour. I have flashed the latest BIOS...does anybody have any suggestions (other than letting it run indefinitely)?

Well one quick solution to you having to use the power supply to shut down and restart your system is to hold down your case's power button until it shuts off...most computers have a time delay of about 4 seconds before the system will shut off so simply pushing the button in quickly does nothing. Let me know if it works!

My guess is that you have some bios settings that need to be adjusted. I don't know that board, so I can not tell you much. I would reccomend that you go in to the bios and set everything to the failsafe defaults. Remove any add on cards except for video. Run memtest86 and make sure that it completes at least one pass.
After it pass you can then try boosting your bios settings and then adding your add on cards one at a time. Memtest 86 is good at catching problems with bios settings concerning the memory, cpu and bus.
