Hi RobinBredin

The problem is {solved} with the XPS 430 that my dad bought, I got it to boot

one time the bios was not seeing the hard drivers or not seeing them right,

The bios version was A01 the newest so i downloaded the older version witch is A00

and reflashed it to A00 and his 430 started seeing the hard drives again .

I used F8 to do the factory restore to Vista Ultimate 64 bit he got {all} of the extra software disks

and hardware when he bought the 430 for {$80.00} that was a very good buy LOL !

I let it run several hous to do all of the new updates and remove some of the software he would never use i let it settle down again for several hours then did a flash back to bios A01 his new 430 is here with me he does not even know i have it running now i will call him in a few minutes to let him know he can come and get it .

So we do not need a new motherboard now , but THANKS for looking up the link to the new !

You was very helpfull with your reply !

You have a very good day.
