Hey,

All the details are here.

Is there something in the BIOS that will sort this?
Also how do I do a BIOS upgrade?

Thanks

I have a Gigabyte mobo, but on my old Soyo it was the same thing, in the BIOS:

Power Managment Setup, "Soft-off by pwr-button", mine was changed to "[instant-off]"

Sorry I missed your other post. For the problem with your brother you can try this
Go to Control P anel and select Power Optons. Click on the Advanced tab and Where it says "When I press the power button on my computer" from the drop down menu, select Do Nothing

Thanks for replying garmanma but that isnt what I mean.
I mean what Wildabeast is saying.

Can I install a complete new BIOS onto my PC or will it not work at all?

Thanks

You can't easily install a new BIOS on your system - since it's tied to the hardware that's built into it. There may be places that offer this service - but it'll likely be much more expensive than a new motherboard would be.

Oh I didnt realise that. I thought it was like installing and uninstalling a piece of Software.
I think I will just leave it then!
