  1. I recently installed Windows 2000 server on a machine that originally had Windows 2000. When the computer loads the bios info, the system fans are fine. When windows starts to load they shut off. I have updated the bios, drivers etc, if any info please help. thank you

    The Windows probably loads the power management drivers and discovers that the fans are not needed (system temps are low) and shuts them off to save the fans, power and your ears.
