Hi,
Thank you,
I started my pc this morning and am getting a new message that I've installed new hardware, which I've not. The splash screen I normally get when booting up is different. It shows Asus Motherboard and then a number. Tells me to hit DEL to begin start up. I opened Device Manager and it tells me that the RAID controller has been uninstalled. I do not have a disk or cd for this as it belonged to one of my sons and he doesn't know where it is. Could someone please help me, if possible or steer me in the right direction? To make things more difficult, this was a custom build. Am I SOL?
Thanks, Georgia

Hi Bruce,
Thanks for helping me. The Asus motherboard number is P4S 800D-X. I'm getting two error messages when I reboot. One is that overclocking failed and the other is the CPU tempperature is high. I can hear the fan running so I'm not sure what is happening here.
In case, the pc runs Windows XP with SP3.

Unless you were employing a RAID...the message re RAID drivers may be an indication that the CMOS battery needs to be replaced.

Okay go to the link I posted above....In fact I'll post it here again for your convenience.

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=tElmFMz0YPEK37pl

Please look for a tab called Download on this page. It is right below the picture of your motherboard.

There is an empty drop down menu next to the words Operating System Here I want you to click the little arrow and when the menu drops down, choose WinXP.

Once this is done, the page will reload with a list of 18 options to choose from.

These are BIOS updates, Drivers for your various hardware and manuals for your motherboard.

The sixth one on this list is RAID Click the + to expand this option.

You should now see the following text. SIS RAID Driver V1.05 Please click the floppy disk ICON next to the name China Do NOT click P2P, this means Peer to Peer and you could be downloading the file from another persons computer..I DO NOT recommend this at all as viruses or Trojans are possible.

Save this file to your desktop for easy retrieval.

It is mostly a .ZIP file, you have to un-zip the file and locate the executable (.EXE) file and move to your desktop.

Once you have the executable file on your desktop, double click it and agree with the terms of the EULA and allow it to install and follow the prompts on the screen.

The URL I listed above also has drivers for your other hardware and there are owners manuals in English where it says Manuals

The BIOS updates have to do with updating your motherboard's BIOS.

Most Asus motherboards have a flashing utility that flashes the BIOS EPROM chip to a newer BIOS string.
These updates sometimes have newer hardware support or correct bugs that were released in earlier versions of the motherboard's BIOS.

I suggest that a person with advanced knowledge of the BIOS to attempt a BIOS flash, because this procedure can cause the motherboard to become un-bootable in the event the flash fails.

Bruce.

Thank you so much, Bruce. All went smoothly and so far none of the messages are popping up.
I will take your advice and have someone else help with the Bios. I love this site! consider yourself receiving a large BC smile!
