very hot place in CA
it's a weird problem that i know has to do with this motherboard cause i exchanged it to no avail. what the problem is is that if i place into into the pci slots the second ide doesn't work and it takes ALOT longer for me to even get a post. same with restarting, there's a 30 second pause before i can even get into the bios splash screen. now if i take away all the add on cards i still get a weird error in the bios about my cdrom drives. instead of detecting them as cdrom drives, it detects them as "tape." parts in the sig, cept i have this motherboard as well as xp 2000+. btw, not the ram either cause i just tried my roommates pc2700 which didn't help either. thanks in advance.
