I have an AN430TX mother board and I'm running Windows 98SE. Windows is'nt setting the right IDE controller for the motherboard, so my CPU is running in DOS compatibility mode and I can't use the cd-rom. I have tried several things, I dowloaded new drivers from that specificly said were supposed to fix the exact problem that I'm having but it did not work. One website said to change some lines in the registry and another said to change some stuff in msconfig and would fix it, but nothing works.

Please help!

Goto the control panel, find system icon and proceed to device mgr.. Find the HD controller [+], click on it and delete both IDEs and exit out. Reboot and allow it find the drivers on its own and finsish the setup. If it works afterwards, great. If not, repeat the deletion again and then point to the source of IDE drivers you want to use. I strongly suggest you reload the buss mastering s/w and/or pci steering/sharing s/w as well. One of these should correct the problem. If this is an older system, its been suggested in the past to use the MS version of drivers as they work better.

good luck -----Willy

Thanks for the help, Willy, but I tried all of that already and still no luck. I 'm probably gonna have to just get another motherboard. Do you have any other suggestions. I recently looked up my bios version, if that helps any.

Bios Version: 4A3NT0X0.86A.0047.P03
M/B: AN430TX
