Hello Friends, Yesterday I typed a post indicating I purchased new memory and an audio card. Well this morning I discovered the motherboard was fried...:sad: . So today I purchased a new mother board. Thank you so much for those who offered suggestions yesterday. Now, I hit the power button and it boots up to tell me to hit f1 to set up cmos and then it shuts down.:confused: . I am open to suggestions. Once again thanks in advance.
