yskim4him Posted February 25, 2005 Share Posted February 25, 2005 Hi, Here's my system spec. M/B : Asus P4C800E -Deluxe CPU : Intel P4 2.8 Mem : Twinx CMX512-3200LLPT x2 HD : segate SATA 160gb x2 on Intel RAID 0 Symptom: every time cold boot (boot up after several hours of power off), the Intel Raid reports one of the HD on RAID is missing. (it does not occur when i reboot it immediately.) Then I would reboot it and go to the Bios setup and do one of these. 1. go Advanced - JumperFree Configuration : Change Performance mode to Auto to Standard or vice versa. 2. or go Advanced - chipset ; Change Performance Accelaration Mode to Auto to Enabled or vice versa. Then after rebooting, it would be OK. However, the next day the Raid is reported missing again. Remedy I've tried. 1. first, I thought it was PSU. so I replaced the PSU to Antec 550w. - no use. 2. contact Asus and reported there's a problem with Intel RAID and got RMA. but Asus Tech. found no problem with ICH5R chipset. they just upgraded BIOS to version 1009. - still same problem 3. then contact Seagate and RMA the HD. - but still same problem. 4. called Asus again. they suggested that change memory modules from bank 1 and 3 to 2 and 4. - still no use. It has been more than half an year, and I came to think about the possiblity of defected RAMs. However, memtest has been passed without any errors for 2 cycles. also I tried with one module at a time, but didn't do any good. FYI, no O/C, no RAM timing changes made. Help me! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
