Bios hangs, PC doesnt start

...Question, my previous setting was HDD in IDE1 and CDROM in IDE2 although the pc did detect both drives, after the post for some reason it said something like "disk failure, enter system disk and press enter"...how can IDE2 be defective if it worked fine with the CDROM????

I don't normally make that sort of mistake, must be slacking!!
If there is a problem with the secondary ide channel, then I agree with you that this could well be a mobo issue.
Given the original problems you were having with your hard drive, have you run any hard drive diagnostic tests?
BTW failure at step 19 0x00000000 just means that you clicked NO when it asked if you could hear anything!

Do you have the front panel audio connector connected to the motherboard (allows you to plug speakers into the front of the case) & if so, are you using it?
Or is it disconnected & you are using the speaker jack on the rear of the system?

I assume that out of the audio connectors on the rear of the mobo, your speakers are plugged into the jack on the left of the middle row & that the audio software control centre is configured to single channel output?

I have a 5.1 surround sound, so i have the black, yellow, and green jacks connected. I have the realtek software configured for 5.1 surround sound

Do you think I should just get a PCI Sound card -- or should I RMA the motherboard back. I think it would be a lot cheaper if i just get the sound card, and I really don't want to spend anymore money.....

I have sent a message to audioboy on your behalf, asking for his advice. He seems to be particularly good with audio related stuff (hence the name I guess!).
You may want to wait & see if he comes up with any ideas.

Hi etd0000hr and Samm,
If I could butt in for just a moment and please correct me if i'm wrong but in the very beginning in the second post etd0000hr mentioned he had to place the cdr on the same ide channel as the hdd to be able to boot to windows, this is not a good setup and a performance hit. But it also suggests to me that the board is not so good if the 2nd ide channel ain't working, that coupled with the sound issue maybe the board is bad.
I dunno what you think Samm
I fix this problem my setup is now HDD in IDE1 and CDROM in IDE2...i just removed the jumper that set the HDD as master -- currently the HDD has no jumper
