    You could always download Windows 7 Manager and try it from inside the program. Optimizer--->system speed-->shutdown



    PS: It failed shutdown after i posted this last night! Got me thinking though, could be a timing issue in the OS vs. BIOS (IRQ)
    anyone tried pullin the CMOS battery?

    Pulled the Nforce drivers and reinstalled from base seemed to bring me back to where i am... does shutdown though .. so far
    Maybe its just easier to buy a decent mobo, Im starting to lean that way!

    letting go

    I am currently looking for a mobo this weekend. Looking at a am3+ so if ever i decided to upgrade on a newer cpu, my mobo will be ready. I tried almost everything on this one, all the tweaks you provide but the time spend tweaking and making this thing to work properly is not really worth it. I will just make this a single gpu HTPC. Thank you for your help. Good luck. I am looking forward for a new motherboard soon.

    Yea for some reason mine shutsdown now but I dont know what I did. I flushed Nforce drivers and used the nvidia newest ones for 750a. Its tricky to do but it might be the where the problem is. I noticed my razorHid doesnt hang at shutdown either anymore.

    I was hunting mobos too, It would be sweet to go to the newest boards, Gigabyte has a few I was eyeballing. About 159-179$

    new motherboard

    Just to let you know that I already pull out my M4N75TD and installed my new Asus M5A99X EVO.

    Install smooth, latest driver. Just nice. No problems so far and i hope it stays that way. Thanks for all the help for trying to make the old board work but i had enough but now I am happy :)

    Now more time on playing than tweaking to make it work properly.....

    Goodluck and hope you get the new board you have your eyes on.
