Great job, Dennis. Maybe you are Brilliant. Nah, just lucky. But, I'm glad it is working again. Now, stay away from PSU's.

It seems that nowadays Ducks get very little respect.

Fact is Ducks are not only highly intelligent but also make very loyal friends. Ducks will one day rule the world. Just wait and see!

Kelly, I owe you a big ole Thank You for sticking with me throughout this mess.

For me the lesson to be learned here is that when clearing the bios and flashing the bios do not work, the problem must be hardware-related. So everything that was suggested was just good old sensible stuff. Only problem was the CMOS itself was defective or damaged.

Besides, Steve said if I did not show appreciation for all your kind assistance, he was gonna hurt me.

@Britton30, my apologies for neglecting to show my appreciation for all your efforts as well - both here and on other problems.

Regarding my ability to run faster than Steve?

Well, that should be a given. Ducks can fly you know.
