Hi, Wanted to let you know that I decided to put in Win Xp cd and chose to let it repair something, if there was something wrong. Lo and Behold! it fixed it! I guess what it did was deleted old files such as drivers etc.. and reinstalled the new ones and I'm back where I was in the first place before it went "crazy" on me. I can say that its all fixed now. Computer is up and running smoothly. Thanks for yout time with me. Your the best!
You know, while I was troubleshooting my mobo problems, I decided to add the washers to see if that was the problem - I placed them between the case and the standoff - that should be as good and a whole lot easier to accomplish, but then I'm kind of lazy.
