    Seems the problem is easily fixed but requires use of a dangerous little utility called WPCRSET (I can email it to anyone, only 60K) which alters hidden BIOS settings.

    Fri 13/4/01 News at NVMax for more info.

    UPDATE: Easier Method!

    This page at ViaHardware.com is where I downloaded it (same link as "easier method" above). Scroll down and you'll see "George's patches", that's the easier way. WPCRSET is pretty dangerous - one of the few pieces of software that can permanently damage hardware - so I went for George's solution.

    Hope this Helps
    (I can still email a few people if that link goes down, but I'll probably just post another link)

    Mattie. ;)
