Asus P4B problem
I have a P4B motherboard with a P4 1.5GHz (Willamette). The problem I'm having is with one of my hard drives. I have two 40 gig Maxtor hard drives connected to the primary ide connector, one set to slave and the other master, and they are in the right postion on the cable. I have set the hard drives to turn off after 20 minutes, to reduce the noise from my system. Occasionally, when I try to access a file or program on the slave drive (after it has shut down) the screen will freeze and the computer starts to beep - 2 beeps with a pause in between. Usually, the slave drive will come to life, but other times the computer stays frozen. When this first started I sent the drive back to Maxtor for servicing, but they said there was nothing wrong with it. So maybe it's the motherboard. I successfully flashed to the most recent bios - 1012. Any ideas to remedy this?
