Hey, first of all, thanks to anyone who can offer help. To begin with, I built a low cost system to upgrade my old one. I have an xp 2800+, asus a7n8x-vm/400, 512 pc 3200 samsung, samsung combo drive, wd ide 160 gig se, windows xp pro. As for problems: 1. The main problem is the onboard graphics. When I go to load a game (in this case quake 3) it will begin to boot, load drivers then crash the system. I know it is a problem with the onboard because I have tried another vid card and it works fine. I have updated the chipset and flashed the bios...still no luck. 2. Hard drive: I have a 160 gig, the bois recognizes that. After installing windows xp, it only recognizes 130 gigs. 3. Onboard network: This thing is a pain, it says it is working, but heh, not really. It won't detect anything on the network, as far as i know I have all the settings correct (unless this piece has some "special" need). After installing a scrapped card, it works fine...but I want the onboard to work, no sense in buying something if it doesn't work. 4. Parallel port: every once in a while when I reboot, the bios will disable the parallel port, and when I go to use my printer...nothing, I have to reboot and enable the port. (I am hoping the bios flash solved this) Thank you for your time, I am fed up with this board and am 2 seconds from putting it back in the box and sending it back. I have read all the threads on other sites possible, I am hoping someone can help.
