    I have the 9950 phenom and I am trying to biuld a raid 0 array with two OCZ 30gb SSD v2 hard drives. I figured out how to hit Ctrl+F to enter the raid building utility. I built the aray and rebooted. T he bios sees the array, but it gets hung on the screen where it give the raid array info. I have to clear the CMOS to be able to get back into the BIOS setup. IO tryed the same thing with my 74gb raptors and had the same problem. So, I tryed to load XP Pro and Vista Ult.32 and 64 bit on 1 of the hard drives (both the raptor and one SSD) But now, I can get the temp files to load off the install disk, but when we get to the point where is says "setup is starting windows" it just hangs and nothing happens. I have no idea what is going on?

Cant find driver for ethernet controller

The drivers would not be different. They would only be different if you were going from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS....AND that isn't a doable 'upgrade' you'd have to clean-install it.

other than that, you have not provided any information, (PC Model, or Motherboard model,) for us to point you to a website that has your drivers.

Try to start your computer into a safe mode and then remove the old graphic card driver but if you cant get to safe mode then probably theres a problem with your operating system. Consider reformat and install a fresh copy of any OS you prefered.

Audio Problems

dear loandtee,
u said u reinstalledyour os. but u din't tell wat's your os.
If it is xp then you have to instal audio driver of that particular motherboard.
If it is vista then no need of audio driver.
U also din't specify your motherboard make and also chipset.
For example i'm havin asus motherboard for intel945gc chipset.
So i can only tel general suggestion
If u have motherboard cd then no problem. it wil have appropriate audio driver.
If you have to download from net then u should find those two details.

The motherboard cannot detect the hard drive/ hard disk

You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on
