Delete and reinstall your wif device on your laptop, and download multiple version of the drivers for it and have them handy.

Re: Computer starts for 3-5 seconds, resets, stays on but does nothing.

The bios question is a good point, I do not know what it is, I will call ASROCK and ask, though my experience with them is that they don't do tech support, they just replace. U think the bios isn't recognizing the CPU and causing it to not power on? I really think it is the power supply. It is one ...

.......... I'd like to believe it is the PSU but I don't think it is, as another power supply couldn't solve my previous board not receiving power If you tried another PS after the first PS already killed the board, the result would have been the same, so that logic is a bit flawed.

It is a lot easier to just use Private/Incognito mode if you're visiting sites you don't want to save cookies from. Dumping all of your cookies every time you exit the browser is going to make many sites less convenient to use. I dont worry to much about the sites I use, but if I do have a concern,...

This sounds like a classic case of a iffy power supply; it started dying and killed the first board is what I am guessing

I cant find my video from 2004, and I think it is because I shot it on MicroDV tape, and cant remember if I burned it to a disk. However, I did find a few more videos and photos from 2004 (BBQ I) and 2005 (BBQ II). These should provide good entertainment :) 2004 https://www.dropbox.com/s/sgo0pxfqwxy...
