I just bought an ASUS p5nd2 sli board to build a PC for my kids to use for school work and can not get the damn thing to boot up. I've installed an Intel P4 LGA775 CPU, 512mb Ram, Smartpower 2.0 500watt power supply (ATX 12v v2.0), and an ATI Radeon X300SE XTASY 16x PCI Express graphics card. I've tried 3 known good HDD's in the case and the damn thing WILL NOT BOOT UP!! I've checked and rechecked all of my connections and still nothing. I've gone through the BIOS and checked all the settings and the HDD is showing up in the BIOS as being the primary IDE....still nothing. I've tried booting from my Windows XP CD....nothing! What am I missing?
Oh, almost forgot...... WTF is a nVidia nForce 4 RAID?!?
Thanks for any help.
