o.k., put the hardrive in another machine, it workis fine, I flashed the board, put it back in here, and cannot get the board to recognise the hardrive. Any ideas of why??

do I need to run a check?? with the software that came with the hardrive, it is a maxtor 60gig by the way if this helps. going to try to run the instal disk from asus, duh, maybe that is the problem. Also tho, while here. I tried to downl;aod the updated bios from ASUS and I could not open it at thier web site. Does anyone have one they could email me?
let me know please. thank you

YOUR NOT GOING TO BELEIVE THIS ONE>

o.k., after 48 hours of working on this motherboard , I finaly reformatted the drive, got the thing to boot up, and loaded the os. I got it online, then played until about 2:00a.m. on a game. shut it off, thinking, o.k., it has a bad memory slot, I am going to be calling them this morning for an RMA for sure anyhow, but check this out, this is where it gets wierd. I go to boot it up this morning, and it was dead, just like the other day, would not boot, it would not turn on, all's I had was the green light on the board, and the fans would start this time, ( not before) So I tap the proscessor, like a whack on the side of the ole t.v...............and YES< it booted.............not only that , the time is now , 7:07a.m., and the time clock for the system says it is 9.32p.m., January 1, 2002......go figure eh? Well, yes, I will be on the phone to the rma dept this morning and that makes 3 ASUS boards in a row, that have gone back to them .....P4S8X (version 1.02) P4S533-E , would not boot, now this one, no boot, and a dead memory slot and this story. :eek:
