I have an ASUS A8V Motherboard with 939 Socket. It's working, but when I turn on the computer, it comes up in the Power On Self Test and says that it does not recognize serial channels 0 or 1. It says hit "Tab" because of this. I hit Tab, then it comes to a RAID screen, wants to start a RAID, but when I get to the RAID setup screen, it won't let me exit without creating a RAID. If I reboot, it does the same thing.

How can I bypass or fix this?

I'm assuming you don't have RAID. This should be turned off in the BIOS if you don't have it. Some motherboards have a jumper to turn RAID off, but I'm pretty sure the A8V doesn't. I've got an A8V manual and I don't even see RAID mentioned in it. You do need to enter the BIOS on the first boot-up so that it will detect the drive(s). You shouldn't have to change the settings - just save and exit. There are other things that you need to set, though, such as how many USB ports to activate. Do you have a manual?
