Just built a number of PC using Asus K8V-MX motherboards as workstations. A\nIDE not a SATA HDD has been used, and SATA is disables in BIOS.\n\nThe latest BIOS is used and the build is\n\nK8V-MX\nAMD Sempron 3400 64 CPU\nKingston 512MB mem from qualified list\nFDD\nCDROM drive\n400w Power supply\nWindows XP Pro SP2\nLatest drivers from Asus web site for MB\n\nAll the PC's work perfectly in standalone or networked mode.\n\nThe question is: I notice the HDD LED flashes on/off at about second\nintervals continuously. This happens all the time. Even half way through\nloading XP before activation this can be seen when the PC is sat waiting for\na input from you. After build and loading the same thing continues networked\nor not, busy or not.\n\nAs mentioned the PC's are working on a daily basis in a business environment\nwithout any problems so to much cannot be wrong.\n\nAnybody notice this with theirs or have any comments.\n\nThanks - Mike\n\nPlease reply to group.
