Not sure if you installed BIOS update F6 yet? (checking to be sure you noticed my edit back in post #65?) I had a feeling that you were! It's been awhile now since being there last but I used to visit often for both work and holiday. > I first noted you have excellent English. In fact, i was thinking your English is almost too perfect to be American LOL > Then one of your posts happened to use a specific phrase.. Which struck me as very familiar for German - English (or maybe that's common for Europeans.. i don't recall) but American English would say "I'll run another ram test". Anyway, just funny that my early impression turned out correct In any case, hope this saga has a happy ending!
