i bought a new 3 port firewire card to replace another firewire card i thought was defective. when both cards are installed, i get 3 real time clock ! and 1 system interupt controller ! in the device manager. when the card is removed, they disappear. i think this is a driver problem, but where can i get the drivers for them?

To install the latest motherboard drivers. I'd would have supplied a link but the forum note must not be showing today. Here it is.

The make and model would be key here as well as the service pack for windows XP Home. There is no version "se2".

Matsonic has dozens of boards. If you want me to point out which motherboard chipset driver I would choose then you need to supply the last bit of information.

Of just head off to Matsonic and see what they offer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
