    adding a single sata drive with os

    That is normal for the drive to display as removable. A couple of fixes are out there, but I just hide the icon.

    Windows loading problems

    About time for me to plug some freeware for you to use to test hd's. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Burn the disk and set it to boot (that) CD 1'st and boot up. navigate with spacebar to menu of chioce. (and I know it has 2 versions of wd utilities on it. ) UBcd has MOST HD manuf'rs diagnostic software on it and its pretty much what I would most likely use to test a hd. *(no more booting off a floppy to test a HD like in the old days....)

    Windows loading problems

    Check routing and or replace SATA cable. (I would just replace them with some heavy duty ones.) Change Sata Port *(change in bios also if necessary.) Check install routines / install guides and make sure you have everything installed as recommended. *(More importantly, find what no to install.) Research error messages on web to find likely component issues / culprits. Sounds like yout MBR is possibly corrupted or damaged and may call for a repair or reinstall.
  7. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...966&postcount=6 I note you list a copy of sp-1 xp windows ? As per above link, you need SP-2 or you will have nothing but problems. Slipstreaming is an option and directions on how to do it are on the webpage here.
  8. <---Quoted for truth. Head to wal mart or any automitive supply and pick up a digital multimeter. A cheap one is 15 bucks a good one is 40+ but the cheap ones work just fine. Test the rails with the DMM and then +.- the reading and adjust mbm5 accordingly to get your onboard sensors as close to correct as you can.

    A lone voice from the wilderness...

    I see his point and yes the ability to look at multiple viewpoints and draw your own answers is a skill that more should use more-often. Myself included. With the advent of the web and blogoshpere, mainstream press is pretty much dead anyway. I mean, we arent spoon fed (what to hear, think, see) from CBS NBC ABC evening news anchors as we once were in the dark days before cable. One for Richard for not resting on his laurels.

    Passive Cooling on the Northbridge? Possible?

    Funny, both links are the same, I figured cronocrash had posted a different link as I did not first click it. Good thread also. "clean and replace stock TIM on NF4" http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20827 BOL with it.

    Passive Cooling on the Northbridge? Possible?

    http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...77&page=1&pp=15 Give this thread a read. Others have made passive NB coolers. Some of the pics are gone on the thread, but if you read it you will see some creative solutions. *(if you just have to have passive NB cooling, otherwise I would just pick the one on this webpage that A_G is reccomending currently.)

    see how u die...

    "While driving, you fail to immediately pull over for speeding when signalled by the cop car behind you. While stopped, you attempt to open your glove compartment, and the rookie cop nervously opens fire on you. You are struck several times and die on the scene" That was pretty funny. That almost happend to me with a state trooper some 20 years ago.

    Death, Deception, and the $4 Million Cobra

    Wow, I missed this when it happend. Interesting story. If I had all the mustangs I had when I was a kid they would be worth 200k or so. *(I have owned a lot of them) If rounmors are coprrect in the postscript, at least it goes to the shelby musem. Can't think of a better place for it.

    Is anyone offended or complaining about Angry's avatar?

    You sir rate an answer and I will give you A_G's words from another thread that relates to this one. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...81&postcount=24 I respect A_G and this site and for that reason I answer you and do not reply to the rest of the thread as I consider it counterproductive to what DFI is about. Had some nice PM's with A_G and their is no animosity between us. Now the rest of you gentelmen and ladies, please let this thread fall into oblivion.
