I have a system that I was having compatibility problems with
(XP Pro, DX9, ATI8500DV, etc). Anyhow, I swapped my mobo with the one
in my machine at the office (and the office machine works fine) and last
night mine was working fine too. This morning I turned it off and now
when I turn it back on the post doens't find either of my disk drives,
but it does find both my dvd drive and my dvd burner, one a slave on the
primary controller and the other a master on the secondary controller.
Then it tries to find disks on the onboard raid controller. And it
hangs. I cannot access the bios to make any changes.

The mobo is an MSI with a via 333 chipset. I'm at a loss as to how to
proceed other than to take each of the disks out of the system and test
each of them in another system. Can anyone suggest another solution?

thanks
