For the love of...new mobo issues
I bought a new MSI board and P4 chipset not two weeks ago. Everything worked great until this morning. I'm running the vacuum while waiting on the kids to get ready for school and as I'm running by the computer case the display light on the case goes out. I figure I must have bumped the power button so didn't think much of it until I reached down to turn it back on and it fails to boot. Error message on the screen indicates that it can't locate a bootable drive. I restart and go into the bios and it doesn't detect any IDE drives only the floppy and the SATA DVD drive. I verified the HD was powering up and I tried another IDE cable. What now? Could I have EMP'd it with the vacuum running close to it?
