    Vista UAC (User Account Control) on or off???

    Vista UAC (User Account Control) on or off???

    PC won't post: unplugged nearything and still nothing

    Do you have a friend with a compatible motherboard in his computer that you can start testing your stuff in to narrow down the problem? If you do try ram, video card, things like this in his computer. Eventually try processor and everything else. If it all works then it's probably the...

    New Build - DVD/SATA/ACHI Issues

    Well then can't you use the SI ports for the hard drive(s), and the Intel ports for the optical drive? Then set the SI ports to AHCI and the Intel ports to IDE
