Just a quick Hi & Hello to everyone out there.
Thought it might be a good idea to update to HJ 2.0.4, run a scan and send it in for analysis. Not that I am actually aware of any issues - let's call it a preventative visit to the doctor's office. Hopefully there will not be anything to be concerned about. If there is, I am pretty adept and following punch-list steps to fix my issues.
Besides this intro, there is ONE nagging thing I am encountering that the "wonderful" support reps from ASUS misled me on. My MB # M3N78-VM would lockup sometimes during a reboot. No rhyme or reason. They suggested I pull the battery and reset the BIOS/CMOS to the factory settings.
Did that, "no issues", except....
- no built in floppy drive, use an external 3.5" Mitsumi USB drive
>>> following their reset, it does not get recognized as the A: drive, but ALWAYS as the B: drive
- 2 internal HDD, but I want to utilize my 1 TB HDD to backup my internal drives
>>> following their reset, NO external HDD via the USB port is recognized
They say "recommend" downloading the newest & greatest BIOS update and flashing it over. Anyone else have a better suggestions since they led me wrong once already?!
