Default Disabling C-States on ECS MCP73T-AD with Acer firmware

Hello there,

I have been experiencing freezes and crashes on XenServer, and this is apparently due to C-States being enabled according to Citrix. This server is running a motherboard from an older Acer x1800 that suffered a broken power supply, and purchasing a new motherboard is not really an option for me right now.

The issue I am having is that I have read up on the BIOS (programmed with Acer firmware), and searched thoroughly through the BIOS in an attempt to find a C-States option to no avail. Are there any of you out there that own this motherboard, or use this firmware and have been able to successfully disable C-States?

instead of looking for c-states look for power management.
