After the shop I patronize transplanted and installed the insides of my previous board...
After 3 weeks of repartioning, reformatting, reinstalling Win2K...

I updated the BIOS to 1005 from 1003.
I still cannot get the ide drivers from the MOBO Install CD to install. The sys hangs at splash screen, or works but does not recognize USB and printer.

POST sees the USB ports, device manager sees the USB root hubs.

I have given up connecting the 2nd 250 GB HD. FDISK doesn't see the whole 80 GB WD drive.

The shop sent one 1MB DDR RAM back for replacement.
They installed a 2nd MOBO.

I used the same RAM as before, it worked fine on the previous board.

What are the chances for 2 of this model board (P4S800D-X) having a problem with memory slots?

Hello,
I'm here to help you.
Have you tried resetting the CMOS by removing the jumpers while the PC is unplugged from the mains and also you could try removing the battery

Well, even the experts couldn't figure this out. The shop installed another MoBo entirely, ASUS P4P800 and all seems to be OK.

Thanks for your response.
