    Hahahaha! None of us thought of that, well good I'm glad you got it solved. I'll give you a rep point for us missing that obvious step!

    Any idea what was modified by the bios update? I cannot fathom any possible reason how that could occur!
    It is a fascinating story with a fascinating solution. Maybe a bios expert could chip in and enlighten us on the possibilities.?

    lol I realy don't know, it was a odd problem with an odd solution. who knows, maybe it wasn't the bios update but one of the other updates that came along with it? its too bad there is no update history in this software. Perhaps there's a log file somewhere
    edit: I think I found it!

    Ah. No matter. I see you have Norton?
    From what I read, that seems to give some strange probs from time to time

    I never use Symantec anything, maybe it was a problem propagated by some feature of Norton. Glad it got fixed!

    Norton Internet Security is a small download that gets attached to some programs. He may have had it without knowing, it may have been packed in with a toolbar or something.
