Hi people, my motherboard seems to have this really annoying problem that I just have no clue to solve. basically, the IDE slots seem to be totally screwed up, IDE0 doesn't seem to work at all, and IDE1 occasionally works but 80% of the time doesn't either, the post screen says "detecting IDE" drives but freezes out while displaying results (which are none with them connected), usually half way down, the pc from this point is totally unresponsive and you can't enter the bios, ctrl-alt-del seems to work and restart the pc though. also the ide post results sometimes overwrites the top part of the screen and cover the other parts, like "IDE 0 = NONE lon 64 processor 2.4GHz" Removing all devices from the IDE ports results in the PC behaving normal and they just don't detect nothing obviously. What is the cause of this? corrupted bios? I've tried different ribbons and still the same problem, I did boot my hd's from IDE1 for a few days and worked fine but now it's just stuck in POST. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've got a raid so i can use that but i'd like to see whats causing this, the mobo is a KN1SL1 Extreme with a Athlon 64 3500+ processor and 1.5GB of DDR RAM.
