Ok, a few weeks ago, my BIOS chip died, so I ordered a new one.\nI have a ASUS P4S533 motherboard (it's like 1 1/2 years old). I\nstarted the comp, everything worked, except for the CD and DVD ROMS.\nTurns out, before I found out it was the BIOS that was dead, I had\ntaken it to a computer store to have it looked at. Without even asking\nif they could start work on it, they switched a bunch of wires around\nand never pulgged the power cords back into the CD drives but they DID\nplug in the floppy, HD, and MB (with the 4 pin rectangular\nconnectors).\nSo I tried to plug them back in. I switched them around to try and get\nthem all to fit into the 2 CD drives, the floppy, the HD, and the MB\nand couldn't. I then called ASUS and they said that the motherboard\nhad something like EASY power or something (Im not sure) and that I\ndidn't need to have the 4 pin plugged into the MB. So i unplugged it\nand reset the RAM just incase.\nI started the comp and got a message that read SMART predicts that a\nfailure is imminent blah blah blah.\nNow that didnt show up before i switch the wires. Could that be the\ncause? Should I just hit "f1" and continue? or should I do something\nelse? I WAS fetting a different error before that. it read "failed to\nwrite ESCD." So im not really sure what to do here. I've got alot of\nimportant crap on there.
