    No, I do not have a floppy. It is disabled it in the bios.

    When I get home from work I will put the SATA DVD drive in SATAII-4 and test it out. There must have been a change between bios F7 and F11 b/c I have always had the DVD drive plugged into the SATAII-3 port. I have not had this problem at all before.

    Thanks for all the recommendations.

    When you updated the BIOS it should have changed alot of the settings. I'm double checking. Please be sure you change Drive A [1.44M, 3.5"] to [Disabled] for now. This line is above the line that says "Floppy 3 Mode Support [Disabled]" I'm Sorry if this seems redundant. I emphasize for I have seen where several confused this setting.
    This may help when you set the boot order to default. It is a good idea to put the SATA-DVD to the end of the SATAII controller, and after further thought it will need to be on SATAII_4 I believe SATAII_5 is for external SATAII. I suggest to do this because some SATA-DVD's have incompatible tendencies with SATAII controller drivers. This is especially important if Windows 7 was inadvertantly set up in AHCI mode.

    When I did update the bios it did change everything. Drive "A" has been disabled and Flopper 3 mode support is disabled as well. I changed that after I loaded optimized, save & exit.

    I believe the actual word I was looking for is you set it to none not disabled. Are you sure you set it to none?

    I used the same settings as stated back on page 2 I think. I know those aren't all the bios settings.

    I did verify when I got home and Drive A is set to disabled/none and Floppy 3 Mode Support is set to disabled/none.

    Regarding the SATAII controller and the SATA DVD - When i reinstalled windows the SATA DVD was on SATAII-3. I have now moved the SATA DVD to SATAII-4 as advised. Will I run into a problem b/c I installed windows with the DVD on the wrong SATA port? I am on my machine now and everything is detected properly.

    Moved the SATA DVD to from SATAII-3 to SATAII-4. I will know more shortly. Thanks for the help.

    No Windows 7 should detect the DVD drive. The DVD drive should be more compatible on SATAII_4. SATA-DVD drives work better in IDE mode. The Sothbridge chipset and BIOS has a seperation or split switch between (SATAII_0 through SATAII_3) and (SATAII_4 through 5). The BIOS also allows the switch in Integrated Peripherals. This way you can run IDE and AHCI or RAID on the same chipset Example↓below↓
    Code:
    Integrated Peripherals
    OnChip IDE Channel [Enabled]
    OnChip SATA Controller [Enabled]
    OnChip SATA Type [RAID, AHCI, or IDE type] 
    x OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type IDE
    Onboard Audio Function [Enabled]
    Onboard 1394 Function [Enabled]
    Onboard LAN Function [Enabled]
    } SMART LAN [Press Enter]
    Onboard LAN Boot ROM [Disabled]
    OnChip USB Controller [Enabled]
    USB EHCI Controller [Enabled]
    USB Keyboard Support [Enabled]
    USB Mouse Support [Disabled]
    Legacy USB storage detect [Enabled]
    Onboard Serial Port 1 [3F8/IRQ4]
    Onboard Parallel Port [378/IRQ7]
    Parallel Port Mode [SPP]
    x ECP Mode Use DMA 3
    I hope I was able to explain this correctly. If not more details is on page 49 of the motherboard instructions manual.

    Thanks for the help. I will report back with any issues. *knock on wood* Let's hope the BSOD's are a thing of the past.

    UPDATE: just had my first BSOD with the new PSU and new Bios update. When the system rebooted I immediately went into the bios and checked system and psu temps. They were 36 and 40 respectively. When windows rebooted I received 2 pop-ups. See bold text below for pop-up message.

    Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown-

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.4

    BCP4: 0000000000000000

    If this is a problem with MS Security Essentials then I don't understand why. I am running it on 3 machines. All 3 machines are windows 7 64 bit.

    Anyone have any thoughts?
