Having problems with your Dell XPS 600 PC Desktop ?

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0 Array in there as my Data Drive. My question is, what chipset does this unit use, so I can find a compatible MB to replace it with. I'd like to keep my RAID 0 Array and I'm fairly sure if I go with a different chipset, the RAID 0 Array won't get reconstructed


Answers :

I have a Dell XPS 600 with the propriatary Dell Foxconn LS-36 nForce4 SLI chipset. There are several motherboards with this Foxconn model number. The one that I have is designed for dual SLI and includes three additional standard PCI slots. The case is custom fit to the board and it would be difficult to replace it.
\015\012My motherboard has the obvious component failure caused by leaking or shorting electrolytic capacitors and a burned conductor coil. The effects are that this causes memory failures to occur in way of screen freezes. I have not as yet found any of this particular model of board on the market and Dell does not have anything to replace it. My suggestion is to avoid buying any more propriatary designed computers and go custom or generic. This is what I'm planning to do. It was good while it lasted and in the longrun it turned our to be big mistake in purchasing it because of its propriatary design.
How complex is this? Order the board with RAID0 striping you like and see if it can pick up immediately, or convert the old array; there's an app for that. If you want the chipset info off your bricked board, you can of course remove the heatsinks (using brute force and/or a chisel or screwdriver) and start reading.

AHCI I bought an ASUS Mainboard P5B-VM and installed XPSP2. The MB supports SATA and my HDD Seagate is SATA2 80GB/7200/3GB/s. In the ASUS CDROM accompanied, there is a software AHCI/RAID but I can't find AHCI in the BIOS. I use software HD Tune to monitor the HDD, the disk is operating in UDMA-5, it reads 58MB/s instead of 3GB/s as manufactured. My question is if I instal XP and press F6 to instal AHCI, SATA2 is activated? Besides, can you provide any solutions to acivate AHCI in my present PC w
