Back in Iowa :( Come on Gators, Get up and Go!
My harddrives won't post in my BIOS...i have 2 p/s's...one got struck by lightning and the other is my normal power supply

when my MSI board went out...or Ii though it was my board...my computer would randomly reboot (when it got to where the hard drives where supposed to spin up)....now on the MSI board, my Pentium II board, and with my Giga Byte 7VRXP (with those two p/s's) my hard drives will NOT post. it recognized an IDE hard drive ONCE...but rebooted and hasn't recognized either since

could a power supply push so little power as to not let the BIOS recognize that i have two hard drives?

P/S's in question 300W and 250W. all of this happened in one day...my hard drives just stopped being recognized

they are the two in my sig 30GB Maxtor and 80GB WD SE
