......O.K., so yes, I'm having some issues that I need to figure out and since I'm not as educated as I wish I was about computers, I'm just going to list what they are in hopes that someone out there may recognize my situation.
**note** I have not installed Vista Service Pack 1 yet............and with that being said......
When starting from a complete power down I 1)turn on power supply switch. 2)turn on power switch on tower.
Everything loads just fine. I have sound, and graphics.
Then lets say I go to Games and maybe play some chess, or start navigating through some other programs.
The first and most common thing that happens is that the screen will freeze. Sometimes i retain curser movement and sometimes it is locked up as well. On 2 occasions the screen went to black.
Then I will press the reset button wich takes me to the DMI POOL screen.
This screen will indicate : PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable (not sure what cable it means)
PXE-MOF Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent
Then it will tell me Boot Failure and to incert Boot Disk and press Enter (I guess this means the motherboard driver CD????)
Other times it will boot alright by itself but come back with no sound. It will say something like "no sound device detected"
It gives me a "Code 10", wich I look up in the motherboard manual......
Code 10 / Autodetect EEPROM / Check flashtype and copy flash write-erase routines
I'm still working on getting internet access, but thats a Verizon issue.
If anyone can offer any insight at all I sure would appreciate it because right now I'm kinda feelin like this
