okay ..my tbird just died..and i got a new duron 600..
i'm using a asus a7v 133.....okay point one...
how do i know whether my mobo is the one which is dead or my cpu?
point 2
do i have to reset my cmos..or sumthing like that?? after i put in the tbird...
point 3...anyone hell know how to use that Raid 0 thingy??
If your not sure if your CPU or mobo is dead you need 2 cpu's and 2 mobo's ( hopefully ones you *know* work ) and just set swap out the suspect cpu and mobo until you know which one is not working. <g>.

I'm not sure about setting up RAID configurations but I would imagine your mobo manual or the ASUS website would give information on generic settings.

Anytime you add a new CPU to a mobo you should reset your cmos. Usually this is done via battery removal or resetting a jumper.

Hope this helps!

3. (Ref: user's manual page 20 Para 5, page 86-89 Section 5.4)To use the RAID 0 first you need 2 identical hard disks (if you use a 10Gb and a 20Gb HD you can only use them as a 10Gb + 10Gb). Use 2 separate UDMA 100 cables and connect to the MB primary and secondary connectors near the Raid chip (not near the floppy connector). Set jumpers J13 and J14 to 2-3 (default is 1-2). Boot up and follow onscreen instuctions.
Caution: This will result in wiping out all data on the disks and require reloading data.
Pros: Bigger & Faster 20 Gb UDMA66 + 20 Gb UDMA66 ~ 40Gb UDMA132. Bigger HD (system sees the two drives as one).
Cons: If one HD dies, your data which is 1/2 on one drive 1/2 on the other is toast. If your drives are mismatched the lower capacity/slower speed drive is the one that rules (i.e. 10Gb UDMA33 + 20Gb UDMA66 ~ 20Gb UDMA66).
