Ok I came up with an idea that worked... went into the bios and set it to IDE, then I started the install of Windows 7 x64, on the first reboot I hopped into the bios and reset the bios to AHCI. The machine rebooted and went right into windows, it installed the AHCI drivers on boot up. It...
well have tried several copies of windows, both my retail versions and an OEM. I even tried a downloaded copy for good measure. I then tried all the discs I had imaged over to a flash drive. That did not work either. same issue
I have an Asus X54c laptop
The sata controller is:
Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 1C03
it is working in windows RIGHT NOW, however for whatever reason the drivers will not work if I try to install windows 7 from scratch. This is quite annoying...
I once lost a motherboard when my methanol based chiller had caused condensation on the back side of the motherboard. Negative temperatures sure are sexy. I guessed I should have used WAY more artist gummy eraser on the back of the board
My son recently damaged my computer, he dumped about 350ml of water in it while it was running

so what should I do from here? and what is likely to be dead?
well I NORMALLY an within range of wireless G. But it seems like installing programs and such over the network would defeat the purpose.
Star Trek Online is only about 6GB installed... so that would be no problem... HOWEVER WoW is 23GB
at one point in time, on my main computer, I had...
I have an Asus X54c-BBK3 laptop, that was recently dropped (the joys of having kids) and the hard drive is now dead... I have been debating on weather I would get a 64GB SSD, OR another 320GB old school hard drive. The price is the same no matter what I get ($55)
The only game I plan to...
the would love an Enermax... back in the day my buddy bought a 430watt Enermax and used it for like 10 years, and it finally died while running a quad core C2D @ 3.8GHz, gtx260, 8 2TB hard drive, 4 TV tuner cards... considering he first had it installed in a rig with a BRAND NEW AMD k6-2 500 MHz
