  • thanks for the great work, windows xp installs fine without any problems. But has someone got standby working? It does not seem to work stating "the device driver for the Microsoft-ACPI compliant device is preventing the system from entering standby". Windows 7 and later did not create this problem. I suspect it's related to BIOS.

    Anyway, drivers are fine and thanx for the good work.

    • Go to power manager and choice high performance, may be your power manager has failed.
      Control Panel has two views. If you are in Theme View double click on "Performance and Maintenance"… and then on Power Options.
      If you are in Classic View, simply double click on "Power Options".
      Or maybe you have installed any suspicion application.. Who make change in windows registry. This is first time to have problem.. The driver are fine and work werry well he is tested many time.

    • Hello Mahdi
      I update the driver by your Driver ID. Uninstall your driver then install this driver by the instruction on in the post.
      I hope that's it and that is everything okay with your LAN chip
