Question
Even if system is off, numlock key remains lit up on P6VXAT with BIOS V1.1 .


Answer
We used to reserve 5V SB for the keyboard power on function. As the 686B chipset is unable to fully support the keyboard power on function, we removed this function from our BIOS but the hardware designation remained. That is why the NumLock LED always is on after the system is shut down.


Question
I can't get the AC resume function to run smoothly with some power supplies, why?


Answer
P6VXAT had to disable the AC resume function on BIOS code. According to VIA, the problem was due to a limitation of the VIA686A chip. VIA suggested that this function be removed.
