As EduardW suggested, I did a cpu reset. It took some digging to find the Y board, but finally figured out where it was thanx to Curt and edwardw's direction. This is what makes this forum so great. I might have had a 1,000.00 paper weight on my hands and all it needed was a reset..one even a good techie person would never have found without the sound advise of experts such as this forum has. Don't mean to gush but man, am I HAPPY!!!
