I was online and my system came up with the blue screen that says windows has stopped the system, or something to that effect. The blue screen gave me a reason: "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT". What in the world does that mean? There have been no changes or add-ons to my unit lately. I am using XP.

Yes, the problem is solved. But now I have another problem. I put that ASUS mobo into another system that has an SATA hard drive. The bios recognizes the drive, but I get a blue stop error when I try to boot. I tried to reinstall XP from the CD and it tells me that there is no hard drive. What the ^%$%* did I do wrong this time?? Guess what? I need help again.

Did installing the raid/sata drivers solve the problem? (suggested in Live Chat)

Yes sir, it sure did. I THINK that I am all set for now as far as computers are concerned.

By the way, I put the MSI mobo in my personal computer. It only has two slots for ram, so I could only use 512. The mobo that trashed had ddr2 sticks in it, so they wouldn't work with either of the systems (ASUS or MSI). But this new MSI is better with 512 of ram than the ASUS was with 1024 of ram. It's actually noticably faster.

Now I need to find a buyer for two sticks of 256 ddr ram and two sticks of 256 ddr2 ram so I can get myself two sticks of 512 ram. Maybe I'll try eBay for that.

Anyway, all is well for now. Thanks for the reply/help again.
