OT: It's Alive! It's Alive!! Some folks might remember that my primary computer went down WAY back over the holidays. BSD's, apparently a memory problem. I had suspected it was the motherboard but wasn't sure. My MSI mobo was still less than a year old so I could try to RMA it, but I wanted to be a little more sure that was really the problem. In my efforts to fix the thing, I tried formatting and reloading XP, but THEN my SCSI HD wouldn't boot. ARG!! I spent a couple of weeks at least just trying to get my SCSI HD to load XP, but it would never boot off the doggone thing no matter what I tried (completely removed my IDE HD). So I did a lot of searching around different tech forums, and finally figured out that the "memory" problem was likely an inherent instability in the chipset that this mobo used (SiS 655 chipset). I bought this mobo just before the Intel 865/875 chipsets became all the rage last year - great timing on my part. It may be that there is actually something wrong with my "old" (as if 10 months was old!) motherboard, but all I could do is get a replacement of the same crap board, so I decided to just buy a new, better one. So I bit the bullet and forked out $122 to Newegg for a Gigabyte motherboard based on the 875P chipset. It kicks the pants off the SiS 655 boards anyway. http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_GA-8IK1100.htm Received my new mobo this week, installed like a dream, and XP loaded on my SCSI HD and it booted just like it was supposed to. So that makes me a happy boy.
