Do you remember the thrill that you got when you to build you first computer, AND IT WORKED. You just gave that to me, Thank you !!!
So, I unhooked everything like you suggested.
Powered up and nothing :(
Took off the fan to the cpu, popped out the cpu to see if I had the same one in my computer I am on now, wasn't the same.
Reinstalled above, powered up again and it worked. I have the following message on my monitor.
512-Chassis not detected.
162-System Options Not Set.

The Real Time clock will lose power if the onboard battery is not functioning correctly. Pressing F1 will record the new configuration. If this message persists, you may need to replace the onboard battery.

I am tempted to hit F1, and then hook up HHDD, etc one at a time but we have come this far...
