I ordered the parts after starting this thread, but thanks for the help. I like to learn. The more you know the less you get ripped off right? To compare to car service, even if you can't do everything yourself or want to, the more you know, the less mechanics can take advantage, and the better parts you get when you need replacement. Good day.
I bought a new surge protector and anti-static gloves and wrist cable, just for extra protection. Could be some dust or cathair fried one little thing on the board and that was all she wrote. I am surprised computer cases don't have replaceable filters like car air filters or foam screens.
