    Thanks for the info :toast: I was just on the edge of nutso when I saw your post.... Well more nutso than usual :laugh:

    Welcome back, hope all went well with the move!!!

    Nice internet speed! :rockout: :respect: I'm lucky to get 6 Mbps on downloads with my DSL :banghead:

    On a side note- I may be out of work awhile, just had a 98 yr old man take an unscheduled left turn directly in front of my work truck :(
    The truck is messed up pretty bad and my back and neck are killing me atm :cry:.... thankfully the old man seemed to be OK at the scene (police took his license away though)

    What sucks is I was trying hard to hit 200K miles on the truck before it got replaced (185K now). They probably won't fix it, even though it's covered, just expedite the replacement. It is/was a great truck (extra cab F-150 2WD)

    Thanks Norton and Mad :)

    And hope you get well soon and the old man's insurance covers repairs.

    As far as DSL is concerned I will never have it again. You should consider Comcast if they are in your area. They have generous speeds for cheap.

    Thx CP. I moved into my own place...cost more up front money so my FX 8150 build with Stingers Crosshair IV Extreme mobo build is delayed by a month...but all positiveness has come from it.

    I hope you are doing okay too! :laugh:

    Nothing like your own place though man. I moved out about 1 year ago and I love it. Was upfront money, but well worth it. :)

    OK guys I got a little problem- no boot/no screen on one of my crunchers...

    790X mobo w/960T, HD5770, Corsair CX430 v2

    Tried the following:
    - reset BIOS- nada
    - swapped 5770 w/old PCI vid card- nada

    All fans spin up including CPU fan and GPU fan, DVD lights up, keyboard, etc just no post screen

    I'm thinking maybe PSU but don't know at this point???

    Any ideas?

    I have a CX500 PSU.... going to try that next. :banghead:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    That's the same thing that happened with my last 2 cruncher builds. I pulled the battery reset the cmos (left the jumper on reset form a couple mins) the rebooted and they came to life. Scared the crap out of me at first. Also do try the other psu if this doesn't work for you. Keep me posted and let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

    Pulled 1 stick of memory and it fired up :shadedshu

    It doesn't matter which one I pull out or the slot I put it in, it will only run w/1 stick

    What now?

    Reset the cmos. The 555be did that also. Wouldn't post with both sticks in. I reset the cmos with battery out and dischared for a full 2 mins or so amd popped both sticks back in and it fired right up and has been happy every since after I got it unlocked.


    Oh your a four star cruncher now. :toast:

    Thanks, I'll give that a shot- will let it run awhile w/1 stick first.
