Hi,

I have an ASROCK K7VT4A Pro with SEMPRON 2500+ 512MB PC2700 and Win XP
Pro SP2

I have set STR to AUTO in the BIOS

But I cannot shut down the fans connected to the MB (the tower fan and
CPU fan) when i put the PC on STR mode via win XP. the MB turn off
only the HDDs !

the only way i've found to shutdown the fans too is to STD (Suspend To
Disk) the PC (equivalent to shutting down the system for me...)

My old Gygabyte MB card could do that (turning off HDDs + fans except
the power supply fan)

Do you know how to do that ?

Thx

Hainan, probably the best source of info would be the manual that came
with the Motherboard or go to the Manufacturers
website.

You may need an updated driver from the ASROCK site.
