    One more thing you could try!

    Take the mobo out of any case or box, put the CMOS jumper in the clear position remove the battery, and leave it sit for at least 36 hours.;)

    Won't work afterwards? Hat to say the obvious, motherboard is dead.

    Mr. Anonymous gets a fricking prize here!:respect:
    Doesn't matter who it is, this is a crazy, but very very nice thing to do.

    Cheers, Mr. Anonymous!:toast: You made me get back some of my faith in humanity.

    I'm glad to see someone could come through for ya, man - I had asked around today and no one that I know has a 775 board they're willing to give up.

    It's nice to hear there are others out there willing to go the extra distance, I woulda been more than glad to but my wallet has been kinda tight recently :ohwell:

    Man, that is great that someone was willing and able to come foward like that and help you out Sol. Just goes to show that there are still nice people in the world.

    Now get my baby back running again with that other GX2 and get some freaking benchmarks going(well it was my baby, and I'm really missing it now. These GTX's dont compare to it IMHO. Oh well, they're now property of nflesher's and I should have a gtx260 on it's way to replace them.).

    Man I'm all about helping others out when I can... if I hit a huge jackpot... I'll only need a few million to live my life out... the rest is going to charity and to help family and friends out (that includes fellow TPUers) :)
