9cjs MOBO dead in the water, need tips
I wrote to Chaintech that the MOBO they returned to me as an RMA replacement six months ago has suddenly stopped working.
Here's what I wrote:
Also, I'm not sure what they mean by "post."

They mean the 4pin 12v P4 connector btw. Two yellow wires and two black ones, with the four pins in a square.

I've got the reconditioned MOBO up and running with a RAID1 and it's as stable as it has ever been except for the fact that I can't get the start via "Any Key" feature to work. Chaintech gave me permission to RMA it once again, but I'm seriously thinking of living without that feature rather than go through their one month to replace it ordeal a thrid time.
Here's the only remaining problem since reinstalling everything on the board.
I somehow lost 50% of my Western Digital 80 GB HDD Drive D: It was partitioned into two 40 GB sections and now only 40 GB shows in XP Pro D: Properties. In the Device Manager it shows WD 80 GB. When I tried to reformat it via boot XP Pro CD, Install XP Pro I get to the part where it lists the drives and only C: drive shows. D: is not listed.
C: is my RAID1 consisting of two 37 GB 10,000RMP Raptors and during boot (in the BIOS screen ) it shows that it's working but the screen also reads. "Non RAID disks: None defined".
I believe I have the cables connected as I did before when the Western Digital displayed on my desktop as D: and E: (40 GB each).
One end of a three connector cable is plugged into the IDE 1 socket on the MOBO. The middle connector is plugged into the WD 80 GB HDD and the other end is plugged into the CD player.
The end of the other three-connector cable is plugged into IDE 2, the middle connector is not connected to anything and the other end is connected to the DVD drive.
Here's some BIOS settings:
"Standard CMOS Features"
IDE channel 0 Master = CD
IDE channle 0 Slave = WD 80 (that's my D drive)
IDE channel 1 Master = DVD
IDE channle 1 Slave = None
"Advanced BIOS Features"
HDD Disk Boot Priority"
1 CH 0 Slave WD80
2 USB HDD Maxtor 40 GB ( this is an external HDD)
3 SCSI 0 Intel RAID_Volume1
4 Bootable Add-in Cards
All are enabled or set to Auto
MPS Version Control for OS = 1.4
Phoenix Award BIOS 6.00pg (even though I installed version 8
BIOS = 12/29/04

Is it still dead? The funny thing is mine was doing the same thing and I didnt have a PS with the 12V connector. I went and got one and plugged it in and it started working. I love the board but I have noticed some little problems here and there
