    Re: Motherboard or ?

    All right, lets try another tack.

    Are you comfortable in opening up the box and possibly changing things?
    If OK, open it up ( with power OFF ) and first checklook for any loose plug in cards or cable connectors. If necessary unplug and reseat them back in their slots. Particularly video and memory cards.

    See how many memory sticks you have installed. If two or more, remove all but one and try to boot. If no good remove the first memory stick and put in one of the others. Boot. Repeat with all sticks, one at a time.
    If one seems to be hanging up, mark that one for possible being bad. Replace all but that one and reboot.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Motherboard or ?

    I hope it's just some lose connection. I'll open it up and disconnect and reconnect a few things and also put things back in their slot. By sticks I assume you are referring to memory cards. I'll see how many I have and test that. I'll do that when I get home tonight and post back with my results. Thx.
    You know it's time to diet when you push away from the table and the table moves.
