    Ok. When igot my mobo back from RMA (it was repaired not replaced) everything was fine, the BIOS had been reset. It POST fine. After editing the BIOS settings a little the mobo posts for less than half a second id say. It flashes i cant even read anything and then it like sort of "blurs" downward and then it continues to boot to windows. Another thing. My motherboard now recognizes my video card as an X800 SE when it's an X800 Pro. I know it's a pro obviously because the clocks are at 400/500 (it's a sapphire pci-e and not overclocked) anyway. everything is fine besides that. I guess they can be ignored but im just making sure there's nothing wrong here.

    Thanks in advance

    Well I fixed the POSTing problem...anyone have a hunch why it may be reading my video card wrong?
