Further to an earlier thread, I have now built my HTPC. Though it took all Saturday, the PC booted up first time with the only issues being the LED s (for power and HDD activity) not coming on and no response from my USB sockets. I seem to have sorted these two problems out - for the LEDs, I turned the connecters the other way round - for the USBs, changing a setting in the BIOS seemed to fix that. Before I detail my problem, it may be useful to know my set-up: Accent HTPC case (single bay) ASUS Motherboard P4C800 E-Deluxe Intel P4 3.2Ghz 1Gb RAM Two 300GB Maxtors HDDs Plextor 708 DVD writer ASUS 9800XT Graphics card Creative Audigy Z2S soundcard Gyration Keyboard & Mouse I changed a few settings in the BIOS (like date, time etc.) but most I left alone as I hadn't a clue what they're talking about. I was going to look into the RAID facility with the MB but I'm afraid the instructions completely lost me as well as referring to a floppy drive, which I haven't got in my system. So I thought I'd move on to loading Windows XP, which I had bought in an OEM version, so there are no instructions. I opened the DVD tray put the disc in and hoped something would happen. Fortunately everything seemed to happen automatically except it asked me something I didn't understand about formatting my disk so I just press Enter and then it took about 2 hours carrying out this format after which it loaded the rest of windows and so I now have XP. Now I received loads of disks with everything I bought which I presume I have to put into the PC to load drivers etc. but when I looked in MyComputer to see the disk drives (I wanted to see the letters which I assumed would be C: and D: and how much storage space I'd got) there were no details just the name of the disks and their model number which is not what I was expecting to see. Is this OK? Is it just the way XP shows them? When I double clicked on the first drive and viewed the details (most of which is blank) it shows that there is about 286Gb of space. I guess I'm just a bit concerned that I've got everything set up OK before I star loading any other software or drivers etc. On another note I can't get the Gyration keyboard to work. I followed the instructions exactly and the Mouse was registered by the receiver (the green light flashing fast for a few seconds) and works fine but the keyboard did not appear to be picked up by the receiver no matter what channel I have it on, it's no joy. The batteries are the ones supplied and are in the right way round (as I get the LED light up on the keyboard). Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be - other than me? My problem, as I've stated in a previous thread, is that I don't really understand what I'm doing on most of the PC set-up side. The manual that ASUS supply's, tells you all sorts of settings and options I've got but doesn't explain them in straightforward English. So I haven't got a clue if something should be enabled/disabled or if I should opt for the %&$@ widget!! When I boot up all sorts of information appears most of which has me lost and I don't know if it is bad or not - such as 'Fastrack is not enabled - BIOS not loaded' - uhhh? Is that good or bad? Anyway, hopefully you get the idea (that I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a PC)!!
