    glad to know you've got the same mobo as me,have you had any
    probs getting your floppy drv. to work? i,'ve got 2 of these boards
    both run like a champ ,but thew dang flopy drv won't work on either one! put a disk in and xp tells me to please insert disk when i try to access the drv! diff bios ,different floppy drv but
    same boards and os.checked cableseetc.but the drv light stays
    on and as i said it's like xp doesn't see the disk! any suggestions?:confused:

    you might need a new floppy ribbon wire that works with your motherboard... i tried using my old one the first time and it didnt work at all.. but the one that came with it did.. try another ribbon wire...

    ECS K7S5A MOB!

    I had that MOB and it fried on me. So I went to the MSI K7T266 Pro 2 and I'm very happy with it. The only thing I wasn't happy with the ECS K7S5A I wasn't able to overclock the board. Otherwise it was a nice MOB and you should be happy with that. It just wouldn't read my boot devices or post at times for some reason. Who knows? I got my money back for it otherwise. Enjoy it and have fun surfing the net.
