    My computer has run fine for a year. TRI-SLI on an ASUS Formula II. Tayan 1100 watt power supply. My other ASUS Striker Extreme board just went out, and I had it refurbished.

    Now this system is acting up. It started when it said it was missing the sys file in windows folder. Theres 2 harddrives, so i wiped the first one and went to reinstall and got the message "Vista cant find a compatible hd", so i went to install on the 2nd hd and got the error message that Vista cant install on this hd, its GTP, or somthing, file system. Then i took out 2 of my video cards, pulled the harddrive cage out, then i could install Vista magically with only 1 hd installed, but vista wouldnt update, activate, and i couldnt update the time. Turned off windows firewalls, still nothing. Re-installed windows and then everything worked. 1 day later, system starts getting blue screen of death on some start ups. Not everyone, but about 1/2 the time. Im thinking maybe its my cmos battery. i already used differnt harddrives and everything. If its not the cmos, its quite possibly another bad mother board?, i sure hope not.

    Windows BSOD is simply the system informing you of a hardware issue, not locating the HDD does seem odd, do you have any other drives you could use? how old is this particular drive?

    As always how is your PSU's output?

Hi Dear,
This is Azeem Inam. So you are having a blue screen when you try to start your windows. its not all the time but when your computer restarts it says no system disk present. Dear you'll have to do 2 things with your motherboard in order to solve above stated problem.
1. Change the Slot of your RAM. And;
2. Change the position of jumper # J32 written as CMOS, to the one free pin and the centeral pin. it is found near the battery. start the computer, it may not start now replace the jumper to its original position again. It will reset all settings. and you are done.

Thanks for your contact. We hope to have a better response from you in future.
