and you're saying the promise card is showing as working too??
I'm with whoever said this is IRQ conflict...but I would add, this may be better defined as a resource condlict...meaning not necessarily IRQ.
I seem to remember a firmware update of the card solved some things like this with certain boards (namely VIA), although I'd be unsure if yours requires this.
Nothing is on the Promise controller though. I have again disabled it in the device manager.
Disabled parallel port (caused 2K3 to throw an error on loading the parallel driver, duh... lol) checked all of the IRQ/DMAs, all set to no / ICU
The Promise board is disabled in the bios....
I have a bios update for the card from SI, I am going to look into that... i am afraid of toasting the card though.
My Bios revision on the mobo is 1007 I believe, which is the most current version for that board.
NO luck, disabled COM ports...
I am wondering if my controller is just bunk? It is hard to tell either way, but something would have to have given by now. With the way everybody talked about it in the reviews, it seemed pretty straight forward. Maybe after work tomorrow I will swing by best buy and make use of their 30 day return policy to see if a different card will work. If I like it, i can always keep it and RMA the Syba card... or I can take it back, RMA the Syba card for a working one. I dont think it is a conflict, becuase there just arent any that I can find. I will take some screen shots and post them before I head to bed here in the next few minutes.
