It is also running a 7500RPM 200gb IDE hard drive.
Mind you I had to tinker with the bios extensively to get this rig to run.
I just purchased a turtle beach riviera sound card. Installed it into one of the open PCI slots. Booted up, and was given the message that my hard disks are not being detected. I restarted several times, tried reseating it, etc. Same error message.
When I open up the BIOS, no hard disks are being detected.
When I remove the sound card - everything returns to normal (I had my fingers crossed).
Has anyone ever experienced this before? It strikes me as very odd. I've been working on computers for a while, and this is one of the weirdest motherboard issues I have seen.
Yeah, that happened with an old turtle beach card I tried on my backup machine. It was trying to use the same resources as some of my system devices, so even though I got the HD issue taken care of, I couldn't get it to run because the driver wouldn't start. If the card has jumpers you may want to try using them to change the settings on the card. I think I gave that card away some time ago.
