Question about ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard
I might guess two things: 1. the battery failed (and has been replaced), 2. the motherboard has both SATA and IDE sockets for hard disks and you are using IDE.
If the latter, (and the BIOS settings were lost when the battery went) the BIOS setting would default to SATA hard disks and produce the mesage in the POST screen of, 'The number of disks is not adequate to create a RAID array' and no keys will work in the POST screen except ESC.
Repeatedly press DELETE (on most computers) on start up, ignore the POST screen, and the BIOS settings screen will come up. Check the date and reset, then goto INTERGRATED PERIPHERALS and reset SATA to IDE, save and exit. This cured my problem.

Some mother boards say that they have raid enabled but it isn't, for other mother boards u just have to get the latest bios update, u can either do that by getting the bios update program for your motherboard from its site or by downloading the update and doing it yourself, but the program is safer and has less errors.
