    ok got my new motherboard today in the mail (replaced under warranty) i thought it was starting to die on me so i had it replaced..


    put all my shit together and i am still having the same problems.

    right now i cant get into my bios because on the "detecting IDE Drives" it just sits there. and when it DOES find them the drive will spin up...get up to speed, and then i will here a click...and it will spin up again. I also thought my 160 gig drive was bad so i had that replaced under warranty as well

    did you try using a different IDE cable?

    I also noticed that you are using a 280-Watt power supply

    9800's are very power demanding...seeing the rest of your set up you might want to get a more hefty PS...I have a 550-Watt Antec in my setup
     
  4. werd on the power supply
    he's over doing that thing by a bit.
