I'm having a serious problem with my new bp6 mobo, Everything was working fine until i installed win98 which is the only OS i have on it! and then everytime i shutdown from win98..the soft shutdown.where the OS turns off the computer, the next time around when i boot up again it'll give me error beeps and i get no video, i'm running a voodoo3 3000, an ethernet card, a SB Live, the voodoo is in the AGP slot and my HD is a maxtor 27gig. I also have a jvc cdr drive and a samsung 32x cd drive hooked up to ide 1&2 the HD is hooked up to Ide controller 4 which supports DMA66. Any suggesstions would be appreciated..basically it won't boot up after you shutdown from windows98, when i shut it down after i get the error beeps it will turn on the second time, could it be the mobo??

I was having the same problem with my Voodoo3.. what kind of chip do you have. I found out that it was either/or the Voodoo was not in all the way or the chip was loose and would come out of the sockets...

Maybe you guys can help me with my problem with my BE6... read my post in the Computer Hardware section concerning two HDDs on UDMA66 mode.
