The bios is extremely slow. I have no idea why...it's just runs at a snails pace and when I press a key it has like a 3-4 second delay. Next, now I'm not sure if this is a problem or not but when I set my hdd in raid 0 stripe they seemed to disappear from the list of drives that show up when the comp boots up and when a jmicron.com website comes up and says detecting drives it says none. Also when I try to install windows xp (which also runs way slower than normal) It always ends up saying that it could not finish because it didn't detect any hard drives which is wierd. And yes I set the raid 0 stripe to the booting hard drives. Since then I have been welcomed with even more problems for instance at random points in the start up process it will just stop. The temperatures are fine. All the hardware is put in fine. All these aren't even all the problems sigh. I don't know what to do and I could really use some help.
I'd say out of all these my largest problem is the harddrives not being recognized. I don't know how to reset my bios or how to update so if you all could tell me how to do those 2 thing s in lamans terms it would be very helpful.
