Are you smarter than 3rd year PC Hardware Students?
I have an issue, and its been passed throughout the school, even instructors, and so far no one has a fix or idea. Im guessing we are overlooking something.
I had a powersupply go bad.
Replaced powersupply still no boot.
Checked everything, replaced Motherboard
Serial ATA (Software) Raid 0 Stripe across identical Maxtor 7200 RPM 120Gb Hard Drives.
Both harddrives passed multiple in house and third party disk/file system/partition tests.
Sata cables in appropriate drive. (1 -1, 2-2)
Both drives can be seen in the bios.
Both drives can be seen in the silicon raid setup utility.
It even knows they are in a raid 0 stripe.
Old motherboard was Nforce3.
Replacement motherboard is Sis.
upon booting, get file system/bad disk errors and cannot boot into windows.
I could easily format and repartition etc..but i have alot of pics and video of my daughter over the last year that i regretably didnt back up.
Anyone have any ideas.
All components in the computer have been cross checked and verified good in labs.
