  1. my motherboard has a previous settings of a 256mb_memory and a 40gig_harddisk

    -after I replaced the old 40gig HD, with an 80gig HD and the old 256mb_DDR with a 512mb_DDR...
    >the mobo always recognizes the old HD and the old Memory

    -I removed the new HD and booted w/out the HD
    >still the mobo recognizes the old 40gig_HD and is asking for a system disk

    -tried to reset modem by removing the CMOS...
    >still it won't work, it still recognizes the old HD and the old DDR

    -what to do?

    Run CMOS Optimized defaults

    Or reset CMOS, refer to your manual on which pins to open or short.
