    It just screwed in place of the T&T fan. The specs say the new fan is supposed to be about 5dB louder because it moves more air, but in practice it is much quieter than the T&T was on it's dying legs.

    HELP!!!

    XP SP3 & SATA (3.5") - perfect
    Vista Ultimate SP1 & SATA (3.5") - perfect

    Then, same BIOS settings, same memory, same PCI video card ...

    Fresh-install:-
    XP & IDE (3.5" + DVD/RW) - problem
    XP SP3 & IDE (3.5" + DVD/RW) - problem
    Reformat & fresh-install:-
    XP & IDE (3.5" + DVD/RW) - problem

    Then, same BIOS settings, same memory, same video card, back to ...

    XP SP3 & SATA (3.5") - perfect
    Vista Ultimate SP1 & SATA (3.5") - perfect

    Then, same everything ...

    Vista Ultimate SP1 & SATA (3.5") & DVD/RW & CD/ROM (IDE) - perfect

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrgh! !!

    The problem only occurs when I hook up an IDE HD (as my only hard disk - not tried SATA + IDE HD).

    The problem.

    The initial keyboard response is slow (minutes!) and the mouse response is non-existent.
    I can only get the mouse to respond by either:-
    Hot-unplugging/re-plugging the mouse (hate that!) OR
    By pressing the Windows key / wait / wait / wait / press ESC then the mouse will work.

    What is this all about?

    I'm guessing a BIOS update would fix this but:-

    a) there's no direct mention of a fix for this in any of the Intel support documentation (well, not in plain English, anyway)
    b) I shouldn't have to flash the BIOS for such a fundamental error
    c) I hate BIOS flashing, done only as a last resort.

    HELP!!!

    Looks like this board only support ATAPI devices on its IDE port. This is curious. But I've seen stranger things.
    Now Galileo is real. Muhahahahaha :p

    Me too!
    But aside from the initial no-mouse response (& to a lesser extent, the keyboard) once resucitated everything works 100% OK including the IDE disk. That's how I installed XP, upgraded to SP3 & re-installed XP etc.

    Once I reverted to a SATA drive ... no problem.

    Maybe it's a BIOS settings thing?
    (There are some pretty weird options in there ... like no numeric keyboard input when changing date/time - only the "+" & "-" keys allowed.)

    Cheers, Ray

    Hello guys, do you have problems with USB devices and this mobo ?
    This is driving me crazy, I have one USB Modem model (Huawei E180 ) that once is plugged in the mobo freeze at POST code 94 ("Clearring keyboard buffer"), it don't go any further with this USB modem.
    Also with X-FI 5.1 USB soundcard I have over 15 seconds delay at boot (right before POST screen).

    I noticed a similar problem to mine (IDE HD & IDE CD/DVD connected at the same time) elsewhere, under MAC OS ... theirs just hung.

    So maybe it's a generic issue with this board.

    Any one else tried this combo?

    muntos are you running the most recent bios? That seemed to fix most of the usb issues.

    bemenaker - what is your "most recent" BIOS version number?

    Does it fix the apparently fundamental IDE problem ... I'm sold if it does!

    I did the XP installation from a 1GB USB key with the aid of USB_MultiBoot_10.
    That way you'll be able to do without booting from an optical drive.

    This method worked with both BIOS 099 and 150.
