I am running Windows 98SE with an AMD XP2200+ processor. I just installed the asus motherboard, and am having a problem with my ide being reset to compatibility mode by Windows, which of course totally kills my cd rom drive accessiblity. I have a hard drive set up as primary master, cd burner as primary slave, and dvd player as secondary master. I changed the "cd" cable send with the mother board to an 80 pin cable in hopes that would help, but it doesnt. Every time it happens I go into the registry in safe mode, delete all the references to "bad" ide 's and reboot. It then will work for 6 to 8 times and it all starts over again. It is using Windows standard dual pci driver. I can't find any other on the asus cd or on their web site. Any help would be appreciated.
