I took it upon myself to try to build my own system (never built one before) and I have had a host of problems but I will stick to the current problem I am having. I have every piece of hardware i bought connected to my motherboard and after some effort I am able to turn it on and access the bios. Mostly everything works and is recognized except for the 2 Pioneer DVR drives. Both drives are on the same IDE cable and I have one set to master and the other to slave but could not see it in the bios. I then tried installing just one drive instead of two and I still could not see it in my bios setup. I tried clearing the CMOS and reseated all of the cabling but I just cant get it recognized. One thing that I should mention is that I am having a problem wiring the front panel as well as the other things such as the cables marked POWER LED+ POWER LED- POWER SW etc. could this impact the installation somehow? Also when I boot up the system and leave it on for about a minute or so it shuts off by itself.
What I am looking to accomplish is the following: Get the BIOS to recognize the 2 Pioneer DVR's, Properly wire the system's front panel (usb, power led etc.) and get the system to stay on without shutting off. If I can get this done with your help you will be in my prayers tonight.
Thanks in advance...
