Yep. Does the fact that it's beeping mean the CPU is operational? I'm very concerned about having to identify and troubleshoot a DOA component... which is why I joined this forum. We got 4 beeps and a 55 which was a pretty straightforward fix. DRAM was the first change out, now we are working on the Ivy Bridge update.... pulling stubborn tiny pieces off the motherboard, bleh. What kind of store would be able to boot that update for me? Some off the rack shop like Radio Shack? Or a specialty shop?
