Hi All,

NewEgg has been very good to me over the years, I'm pretty confident that once I explain to them all the problems I've been having & that I'd be purchasing an Asus board they'll be more than happy to do so.

Hi All, I have just finished building a Core 2 Duo System using Intel's Badaxe Mobo & boy am I regretting it. Aside from the well documented Marvell controller issue, I keep getting a Intel network message during the boot up process. In addition, Windows hangs up during the boot up. I'm really getti...

Hi All,

Wow! I had no idea that Monarch was being so dishonest in their dealings with folk. I've gone through the Threads that dicecca linked & was floored.

Hi All,

It's always sad when a business falls upon hard times no matter what the circumstances were. At one time, Monarch was a highly respected name, I'm sorry to see it come to this.

Did you change the boot order in the BIOS, so that your System would Boot from the Floppy?

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT Error

Hi All, I just put together this system from spare parts to give to a kid down the block who needs one. However, I keep getting a PFN_LIST_CORRUPT error. I was only able to find limited info on this error, but it seems that it's either Memory, Hard drive or heat related. System specs are as follows....

Hi All,

So does the opposite happens between AMD & nVidia? As I said before, nVidia has to feel like they've been had. Will they continue to do business with AMD?

Hi All, I didn't know about the Intel Marvell deal, however as you stated nVidia has to be worried, nVidia is a leader not only in chipsets but graphics as well. Don't you think that it's at least possible that Intel could view them as vulnerable. In addition, at the very least could we be looking a...

Hi All, I have a couple of questions concerning the merger between ATI & AMD. First, how will this merger affect the relationship between AMD & nVidia? I have to believe that nVidia has to feel somewhat slighted by this. I thought AMD & nVidia had a very close relationship, obviously, that's not the...

Hi All,

Removed components from Chassis however, still no joy. I've come to the conclusion that my MotherBoard has given up the ghost. I'll have to start the RMA process.

My thanks to all who responded.

Hi All,

No lights beep or anything. However, I'll take your suggestion & move components outside of the chassis & retest adding one component at a time.

Thanks for you reply. :)
