I recently had a "computer guy" re-partition my 10GB hard drive from 5 drives to a single drive.

To do this, he changed my BIOS.

Now when I Shut Down, the CPU goes Off.

I don't want this to happen, since I have my CPU, printer, scanner, monitor, etc. all hooked up to a single power source with an on/off switch for all units.

I went to BIOS setup and under Power Management could not find a way to Shut Down the CPU and keep the Power On. This was available on my old BIOS.

So, what BIOS should I ask the "computer guy" to install so that I can have this Shut Down/Power On feature?

If he doesn't have the BIOS that you suggest, how can he identify a BIOS with this capability?

Okay.... from what I'm understanding of your description you have all of your computer stuff on a single powersource so you can shut them all off at once. You upgraded your computer, and now your computer shutdown completely, rather than going into standby/hibernation. When he changed your bios..... he physically changed a piece of hardware, added software to it, changed something in the settings ????? From your clues I'm guessing that your running windows 98?? Either way your BIOS should have the option to suspend on shutdown, rather than power down, so help us out with those questions, and we'll find a cure.....By the way , do you know the name of the new BIOS, that'd help too

VALIANT2003:

Thanks for your help.

When I go to BIO Setup Utility I see:

BIOS Version: 4S4EB2X0.86A.0024.P17
Processor Type: Pentium II
Process Speed: 400 MHz
Cache RAM: 512 KB

Yes, I'm running W98.

I don't find the option to ShutDown and keep Power On in the BIOS Setup under Power Management - or anyplace else, although it was there with my old BIOS.

Please keep you answers "nontechy" as I'm a retired engineer with limited computer/tech skills. Probably just enough to get myself into trouble.

No, I haven't seen AMI Bios or Award Bios. Where would this appear other than BIOS Setup Utility, where I see

BIOS Version: 4S4EB2X0.86A.0024.P17
Processor Type: Pentium II
Process Speed: 400 MHz
Cache RAM: 512 KB

it will appear right after the video bios loads (first thing you see when your computer goes from black to words)....and before the ram count (thoes numbers that fly by) Should be info about the bios, motherboard, and Version you are on...and well before you hit delete (insert you key of choice here) to get into the bios
