  1. It lists it in the manual as a Highpoint 372N controller. So far, I haven't had much luck finding any non-serial ATA controllers from Highpoint. I've been trying to find somewhat older cards that may have this chip, but so far no luck. If anyone is aware of any PCI RAID cards that use either this chip or a compatible Highpoint chip, please let me know. Thanks.
  2. >>any chance you have a faulty keyboard that's sending the F2 (or whatever) uncommanded?<< Apparently not. I unplugged the keyboard and got a message at bootup the said there was a keyboard error or it was disconnected, then proceeded to ask again for the boot floppy. >>could you please post your system specs in your sig?<< Well, I'll post them here. 3.2 P4 Prescott 4x512 megs 400Mhz Geil Golden Dragon ram 80 gig Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 system drive 2x160 gig Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 for RAID 0 running off mb Highpoint chip nVidia FX5700 256 megs ram Antec TruePower 480 ps Like I said, the system's been running fine for months, then it just freaked. At this point, I'm ready to dump the mb, but I need to access the data on the RAID. All I realy care about is the data onthe RAID. Is there a standalone Highpoint PCI RAID card I can use in another mb? Can any Highpoint chip be used? Thanks.
  3. I don't have a USB keyboard, but I'll try unplugging the keyboard altogether when I get home.
  4. I have a DFI LanParty Pro875B mb that decided all of a sudden to go into a BIOS update mode on startup. The system never makes it to POST. It just asks for a BIOS update floppy. I dowloaded one off the DFI site and tried it, and the Award flash untility comes up asking for the BIOS filename, but I can't type anything. Nothing shows up when I type, so the system just hangs indefinitely at this point. This system has been running fine for several months now, and it just started doing this out of the blue. I haven't done any hardware or softaware changes/additions/subtractions whatsoever. I tried clearing the BIOS with both the jumper settings and removing the battery for a minute, but when I restart the system it does the same thing all over again. Is there anything I can do to get this system back up? If not, I'd like to replace this mb, but I have data on a 2-drive RAID0 array running off the mb Highpoint chip that I need to access. Is there a standalone Highpoint RAID PCI card I can put in another system that will allow me to access this data? Thanks.
