ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Restart Problems

By toulsonguk ·
I'm currently using a maxtor SATA 120GB HDD and whenever I select "restart" from within windows, I get the normal post screen then the RAID BIOS lists my hard disk, then nothing. It just wont boot. I have to literally power down and switch on again. I've got the latest BIOS update and this has made no difference. I've changed the boot options in the BIOS and still nothing. I've even tried a different hard drive and cable and this does not help.

If I change back to an IDE drive, it works perfectly fine.

If anyone might be able to help, please post a reply.

slightly flaky drive

Sounds like a fault I've found on some WD drives. Seems that a chip on the control card is not getting reset properly on a warm boot or reset. Works fine on cold boot, but just can't find the drive on a reset. Sent the drive back to WD and they replaced the chip on the controller and works fine now.
