Ok, this really doesnt have anything directly to do with xp but eh help if you can. I have an ABIT VA6 apollo pro mobo with 2 hdd. My first problem was that one of the hard drives would just disappear. When this happens, I reboot. When i reboot, say the hdd name comes up as WD13AA when i usually reboot but this time it comes up as WD@#23!!!!!!!!!! or some weird **** like that right. Now i done tried everything (formating,rebooting,xp repair) untill i got it back to its original ID or whatever. But it happens again. I thought it might be a loose IDE cable so i checked it and it seemed to work. But it STILL seems to happen. Then a second problem comes up. When I turn on my computer, My monitor doesnt come up AND i dont hear the little PC sound beep (which usually happens like after memory check or something). So my main question is... What should I do? anyone got any suggestions as to what is my problem? should i replace the mobo? plz...help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
