Specs: Asus AV8 Deluxe MB AMD Athlon 3000 skt 939 Corsair 1 Gig PC3200 2 WD HD'S in a master slave config Diamond Stealth 9600 256 meg Video AGP When i boot up my PC without a hard drive connected everything is ok, it posts normally then beeps due to no hard drive being detected. If I hook a hard drive into the Primary IDE slot the PC will not post, nothing happens actually no video nothing. I have tested power supply with tester, everything is normal, I can hook my DVD burner into the Primary IDE and it will detect it and boot up normally, it only happens when I hook a hard drive to the Primary IDE. I have not tried hooking it up to the Secondary IDE, when hooking it up I have pulled the jumpers off the drives and tried them one at a time, it does not matter which drive I try it acts the same with either drive. Both HD'S worked fine in my previous computer. I have taken the MB out of the case placed on static bag, same results occur with it out of the case as with it in the case. Does anyone have any ideas, I am assuming the MB is bad, but weird that the Primary IDE will work normally with the DVD burner hooked to it. I'd rather not go through the return process and have to wait, especially if Asus tests it and they say the board is fine.
