hey keith,
i just got up and see that it has passed 8 complete cycles. what a dramatic change! does this mean the ram sticks are good? and i hate to sound uneducated (which i am) but what did the bios change do?

(yes, i want to live in hawaii, have a laptop that works, AND be educated) :whistling: :blink: :help:

The BIOS defaults usually set everything to work as well as possible together, some have enhanced settings but default is the safest

So, with the money you saved on the memory, the beers must be on you when DancingDolphin drops me off (from the yacht) in Hawaii
