Why, Thankyou! Pedro fae Mid Calder, the Scourge of Radio Scotland's Rugby Friday night! Yes, I'm a mongrel really, Ross Tartan, but also MacPherson . . I wear the Mac Tartan at those dreaded 'Dashing White whatsits' weddings, or just maybe..Referendum day at Twickers tomorrow for the Calcutta! (Only I won't be there, but I will prance around my lounge kiltedly if we give em a good run for their money! As per the motherboard issue,well.. Sure now that the PB bios restricts adding further memory. Had 2 x 2gb pc6400 dimms fitted - Bios saw 3gb, XP saw 4. Puzzled, you will be! On removal of said dimms,and replacement with the original 1gb ones, the onboard sound card stopped disappearing from Dev Manager. Weird. To get round this, I've put W7 Ultimate on, gone back to the original 2 x 1gb dimms, and use a flash card to cache memory. When I've paid off all the January outgoings, it might be fun to Investigate further. As a Computacenter techie, doing his 2nd A plus,I am bound to investigate - might combine the theoretical with the practical! The only issue I foresee is that replacing the M'brd may mean that if the Imedia front panel sub units,i.e. power switch/mem card/audio wiring is non standard. I am a prisoner of my own curiousity lol Better just buy an I5??? Ps: Jock1e is a fine monicur - fae whae, as they say??
