I have an old CM Systems tower w/ a Maxtor 40g hdd drive PIII (800mhz), Creative 52x cd rom that was working just fine a few days ago. Now this is probably incidental but I installed a new router a couple of days ago. It might be an Asus 100/133 mother board(not sure) but I had one exactly like this one a few yrs ago and that's what it ran. The only difference is this one was originally used for archiving it has the 40g max and had 2 insertable expansion bays with 2 20g maxtors in them you know the kind you can just slide in and out and change the hdd in a snap, slide it back in and your off. Well I turned it on today and it isn't detecting anything. cd rom hdd it is detecting the floppy(which never worked after I installed xp) I can't get this thing into safe mode. It gives me a message to insert disk but the cd rom won't open so that's not an option. when the power comes on it starts to go thru it's processes and says none at every drive(pri master, pri. slave, sec master etc. It reads the RAM the 3.5 floppy (says SPD On Module(s) : Yes... and Data Integrity: Non- ECC...I have no idea what this means) then this.

Sorry for the over kill but some body unlike me with some intelligence might glean something from it.
