This is not really a bee matter. Just wanted to keep you posted as to why more material is not being generated.
After having the new CPU and motherboard for a week, many hours on the phone with tech support, and the purchase and installation of an updated BIOS chip, defeat has been declared. I have arrived at the conclusion that something is wrong most probably with the motherboard.
I called and none of the computer places around here will test the chip or motherboard. Therefore everything has been removed and as neatly as possible, put in its original packaging. UPS will be getting some business from me today.
Through this process I have found many accounts of others detailing similar problems with the motherboard. Some have gotten things to function while others have not.
This weekend will be spent researching a better alternative.
