  1. I just built a new PC, specs:

    AMD Athlon64 3500+ (2.2 GHz) Socket AM2 Processor
    Asus M2N-E - nForce 570 Ultra (Athlon64/X2/FX/Sempron) PCI-E Socket AM2
    Antec TruePower 2.0 430W Power Supply
    Sapphire Radeon X1600 Pro 256MB PCI-Express
    Samsung 512MB PC2-5400 DDR2 DIMM - OEM

    Now I've tried 2 HDs, one a Samsung IDE 80gig and a Maxtor IDE 40gig, but it keeps happening. I realize this motherboard only has one IDE controller, but I bought a PCI IDE Controller as well to help support the CD drives. But it's not booting up properly, despite every combination of the IDE plugins I tried.

    :( All help is much appreciated.
