Here are the issues my mobo has. Is there anyone who has encountered\nthem and found a solution?\n\n1)\nI bought two Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB harddrives (HD502HJ) and this\nmotherboard fails to detect them after a restart - any kind of\nrestart: CTRL-ALT-DEL during boot, proper restart from the OS or a\nRESET. They are only detected after the primary power-up.\n\nI find it hard to believe that it's the HDDs that are troublesome.\n\n\n2)\nI can't power-up this motherboard straight after shutdown. I have to\nwait some time before it works again.\nSometimes, pressing the power button lights up the Green led and all\nthe fans start spinning, but the screen stays blank - no boot.\n\n\n3)\nIs there an alternative BIOS I can install on it (I couldn't find one\nyet)? The current one seems to be the cause of all my problems.\n\n\nThank you!
