Thats down the road to religion!!! As for other people who are filing posts after installing sp1 you have just assumed that they are all stupid or something. Sorry but literally thousands of people complainging of hardware faults is just too much of a coincidence for it to not be a valid point. As for building thousands of pcs, iom not being funny but its not rocket science is it. plug the blue plug into the blue socket. plug the square cpu into the square hole.......please dont make out that its anything above that level of interaction.
As mentioned, the pc now works after reseating(and testing each on its own) the ram. Believe me the dimms slots are so tight it would be nigh on impossible to seat them wrong. Part of me wishes that I had videod the whole experience or have a live cam on the situation. The lesson ive learned here is to just do it myself! saves a lot of answering the saame questions over and over again!


Obviously you don't know much about building hardware. What people now refer to as "building" PC's is merely placing various complete modular parts together in a prescribed manner. Very little knowledge is required. This was the first "real" computer I built; this was the second

and I have lost track and count of all the others.

With regard to the "road to religion", religion starts with faith, and faith is believing something you can neither prove or disprove. I prefer hard facts.

Good to hear that your machine is now running.

Have a nice day!
