    Ok heres my story. PSU went out on my computer and took the motherboard with it, comp would not power up even with new PSU.

    I got a new motherboard, exact same model as before so my windows xp would work, installed it and it powered up. Everything gets recognized except my hard drives. I have 2 Western Digital SE 160 gb hard drives that had in a RAID. I have them both plugged into master just like it was on the other MB, I have 'set sata as RAID' set in the BIOS, I've checked the connections which seems pretty simple so I am at a loss. Am I missing something? I have never replaced a motherboard before so I am just wondering. Could my old PSU have taken BOTH HDs out along with the old MB? Thanks for any insight you can offer.

    Here are my over all specs:
    ASUS P5GD1 mb
    P4 3.6 ghz cpu
    2 Western Digital SE 160 gb HDs
    Windows XP Home
