If you mean this



then yes, I do have them installed.

Out of curiosity, if a motherboard is fried will you still be able to boot up and will it POST?

At this point i'd say your mobo is ok probably but that ide connection may be defective....Or it still may be some kind of bios setting...i'll check back on the asus site for you later and post any responses.

yeah if you had shorted your mobo to the case it wouldnt post (ive done it before) yeah sounds like either its the bios settings somehow or the ide plug in , maybe one of the pins or something is jacked, even though usually you still get a connection it just wont let you play anything, oh well maybe try rmaing it and try again with a new board

Good news. The mobo now detects the dvd drive! I have no idea how or why, it just does. I decided to take everything out of the case, setting the mobo up on the anti-static bag it came in. The funny thing is the first time I booted it I got the same error as before. So I fiddled around with some connections just making sure they were on tight, booted again, and it worked. Weird. The problems keep coming though. Windows XP decided to freeze while installing.... sigh. Time to troubleshoot again...

Possibly shorted the mobo after you forgot to hook a psu cable up??

So just before I went to bed last night I set everything back up in the case and once again it doesn't detect the dvd drive. The problem has to be something to do with the mobo being inside the case... i'll have to play around with it after work.

Please continue sharing your ordeal as I am exeriencing the same symptoms.

I had the p5b plus MB oprating with no problems in a separate case with ide hd and dvd player on same ribbon using cable select.

With new case I am using a WD Sata HD and IDE DVD and floppy. All devices are detected but i have not been able to get the floppy or dvd to boot yet.

Will report more later.

Thanks.

If windows freezes during install, that could be because you have peripherals connected. Do you have any extra devices connected? USB printer? You should always install windows with the BARE minimum of connected devices.
