    Hello all. New member here. I was told about this forum by a friend on GamingTrend's forum. He said I could post my specs and get the best bios settings from you guys. Usually I can do this but this board is PACKED with so many options Ive never seen I really need the help.

    EP45 - UD3R
    1 500gig WD hd KS sata
    1 external Maxtor 300 gig HD firewire
    1 LG DVD-R sata
    I have a cd-rw connected but it doesn't see it
    a SB Audigy 2 ZS pci sound card
    1 cable modem connected via mobo lan
    Sceptre 20" lcd

    Ive not changed any settings cept my boot order..Let me know if I need to post something plz. Im not looking for an overclocking setup right now. Just optimal settings. What should be on / off or set to. Im a gamer only btw.

    Thank you!

    2 problems im having. Might be solved once I see the bios tweaks I requested...is 1. My IDE cdrw is not detected at all. Might be a jumper on the cdr itself, not sure. And 2. I installed the onboard sound stuff just to see how it sounded. Then I deleted the drivers for it and stuff and put my Audigy 2 ZS in..but each time I reboot it redetects the onboard and wants to reinstall the hardware. I have to hit cancel everytime I reboot. Annoying.

    I'm not familiar with your board so I won't be much help but the sound issue should be as simple as disableing onboard sound in the bios. Otherwise Windows is going to pick it up everytime you boot.

    After a look at your mobo manual ... You should be able to turn off the onboard sound by disableing the "Azalia Codec" under the "Integrated Peripherals" heading in your bios.
