Geez, I thought I was old with a Vic20 and a tape drive... Does an HP 1000 series, Data General MV9000, or a DEC PDP-11/20 count? :)

And welcome aboard!!!

The three beeps you heard were probably caused by the RAM being overclocked. The reason I recommended the above steps is that pulling the CMOS battery should clear the overclocked values. You were trying to flash the BIOS with an overclocked system which is probably why it did not work. If that was ...

It takes awhile using the BIOS recovery flash and you won't see anything on the screen while it's running. The first step when recovering from a bad overclock on thid board (the reason was probably your RAM being too overclocked with the FSB change) is to jumper pins 2 & 3 (where you disabled watchd...

What did you do to uncompress the ISO image? and what software did you use to burn the image to the CD-R? You don't uncompress anything, when you download the ISO image it is a *.iso file that is an image of the CD. Deepburner free might work or ImgBurn. I use the latest Nero but I don't use 64 bit...

DRM is built in by the media "creator", Vista just provides the mechanisms to enforce it. Your un-DRMd media files should be fine. If in doubt back them up to another drive 1st. DRM bites but with the latest agreement between EMI and iTunes we may finally see the ugly beast die it's well deserved de...

You might need Vista when DirectX 10 games are released, since there will be no DX10 for XP (I think). If you want to play DX10 games, of course... Every article from developers I read about DX10 games states that they will be back compatible with 9. That may change in five years but no game develo...

Microsoft is a big mafia monopoly Corporation. Their "Vista" only "Games for Windows" is a future thing that will make all gamers require to have "Vista" for the "next" "game" to come out in the future, no "Vista" no "Games".

Gotta' agree with seanriddle, the ISO update is the best way to go (CD-Rs are cheap)
