Firmware problem with P4M900T-M ecs elitegroup motherboard

I originally had Windows XP installed on this computer. And then (stupidly) upgraded to Windows Vista Home Premium. I am getting the following error message in the Event Viewer:

Some processor performance power management features have been disabled due to a known firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware.

Do I need a bios update for this motherboard or do I need new drivers for this motherboard?

Hi,

Reading that my first thought is motherboard bios or motherboard drivers. because it says firmware, i think bios is the first thing you want to check.

understandable, however a lot of motherboards will now update inside of windows, (although i wouldnt try it inside 7 due to it being a beta), and are protected in various ways from problems. but checking motherboard manual or manufacturers website to see how they do the bios update is always worthwhile. And if your unsure, then safest option is don't. Always worth looking for additional options first.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

First go back to XP dont use Vista it is too buggy. and there are driver problems left and right. but if you dont wnat to do that ther are dirve up dates avalible but it depends on the current version. go into the bios to se whar version you have. then check with OEM to see if there are up dates to fix your issues. but o would get your hopes up
