Since building my computer a while back I have continued to have startup shutdown problems with my computer.  First of all when I first start my computer I get the error message that “No BIOS detected”.  Despite the error message windows starts without fault.  From within the system everything seems to work fine, the only problem I see is that when I open my device manager I get a conflict with something called WinXP Promise FastTrak 579 Controller; a driver that I installed from a diskette that came with the motherboard.  
   The real problem comes only when I try to turn off my system.  No matter what I do I get a fatal exception (Blue screen of Death) error and I end up having to reboot my system manually.  

My motherboard is a Soltek SL-K8AN2-GR/K8AN2E-GR I’ve tried to access to makers website, listed as www.soltek.com.tw but it seems it no longer exists.  What should I do?

Is'nt that a RAID controller? If you dont use RAID have you tried deleting it?

I believe this is because you don't have anything attached to the Promise controller.  If this is the case you can disable it in your system BIOS.  Otherwise, the warning is no big deal.  The error in Windows obviously is more pressing.
