I have a Asus SK8V M/board and was wondering if anyone knows why it does not detect the sata hard drives if it has been switched off for a while. I is ok if I use the prome on board sata controller but it has the problem if I use the on chip VIA controller. As it boots much quicker from the on chip I would rather use this. I have tried updating bios and fiddling with settings but it dont make a difference. It detects the drives ok if you dont leave it off say overnight.
