I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.

Dear Support I'm currently reconditioning an Aleinware desktop which was D.O.A. and totally non-functional and after taking it totally apart & re-seating the CPU with new Antec Silver 5 Thermal...

I don't think that you need a bios upgrade for a 'virus' infection - they generally don't go there, as modifications to the flash memory can be tricky and difficult without knowing the flash type; viruses generally affect OS areas as being much easier.

I have a asus AV7 with a amd 64 bit processor 2 gigs of ram windows Xp Pro 7 dvd burners NEC 16x and 2 120 gig 133HZ.sata drives and 4 133 ATA hard drives 133 maxtor 120 gig configured in a raid stripped 0...

There is a glitch on those AV7 boards ata controler I think. Check the website for the new drivers supposedly they help, but all they did was crash my raid after I installed them. I ended up cloning the whole raid over to a single large sata drive and put in an ide to sata card (non raid unfortunately) and the problem went away. I only had the problem under very heavy disk loading. It seemed to not be quite so bad when I added some additional cooling aimed at the motherboard. As to if it will help your software problem I am unsure. However the only time mine did the mini dump was when I was doing heavy video editing work and after nixing the raid it fixed it, But then again a bad drive in a raid can cause that also.
