  1. Sorry to hear about this CB, glad to know you are doing better!
  2. I've done all that to no avail. I ended up sticking in the other MB, and put a brand spanking new ram chip in it, and it is doing the exact same thing. I pulled a processor from one of my other comp and it fixed the problem, so as it turns out, it was a processor issue after all... Which brings me to my next question, is computer geeks still a trust worthy site to order from? They have a processor that will work for $45 and it says they are new...
  3. Well, it has sucessfully been flashed, but I am still having the same problem with the video... I made sure of all the settings, I have even turned palette snoop on and off, nothing seems to change...
  4. Ok thanks for the help so far, if you don't hear from me soon, then something went wrong and I may have got my bazooka out and blown this thing to hell
  5. Thats what I figured, but I am paranoid and a schizophrenic.... Just gotta be sure.... This comp may blow up like a nuke if I do the wrong thing, its happened to me before....
  6. This part has me a bit confused, can you even really get to dos in XP I thought XP was DOS free?
  7. I already have them printed out. I just want to be certian that the flash utility is correct before I attempt to use it...
  8. Well I got that, but it says update easy flash utility to 1.09 where you download the bios at under its description, # 2
  9. Boy that ASUS site sucks a big one. It says I need to update the flash utilitie to ver 1.09 but it only has 1.08 for download. And the instructions make about as much sense as president bush....
  10. I think the only thing I haven't done is flash the bios, but I want to be certain about anything else before I do that and take a chance at frying this board....
  11. All right here is a test, I know it needs to be defragged, she was supposed to do this yesterday, but forgot... http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=U3X6PWZRRMRSZNQQ
  12. I just arrived here... Fixing to post a test. Yes I know all about onboard and vid cards installs.... I have built many computers... The only time I have seen a problem similar to this is with Win XP SP2 and some older games and cards. But in this case, I think it is more of a hardware problem with SP2 and this particular board.
  13. Ok well, where do I start at then, what could be causing this?
  14. Well I don't have alot of time to work on it today, But what ever I do I need to get done today, or it will be next weekend when I can get to it again... If we can save me from having to reformat, I am all for it... I don't have the comp with me, but I will be heading over there in awhile
  15. Problem is its a very low end ASUS board. I have tried 2 different ATI vid cards, 3 different NVidia cards. I have change different cmos settings... ANd it always does the same thing... I have changed game settings etc.... To no avail...
