    look for the little right arrows in the bios to open a new menu, probably hiding in there.

    Maybe it's an "always-on"? Some BIOS's don't have an on/off setting.

    motherboard monitor 5 has smart checking, you have to enable it though.


    WAIT A MIN, im sure when you go to detect each drive in the initial bios screen that the smart option is in the same menu. you can enable smart per drive and not all or nothing, im sure. (as far as A7V8X anyway)

    I'm trying to find SMART in my BIOS too - its definitely not findable.
    I need to find AGP Aperture rate too - but thats another matter :p
