  2. Thank You for the information... Now the day before, I had trouble flashing the bios...

    Someone else on this board said not to flash it, and I just let it go... So the short of all of this I couldn't flash the bios, because I was not Adminstrator, and this is a private system that I have a home, and I would like to upgrade several things, like the bios, cpu, ram, and graphics card... Then I should be able to move to windows 7, and keep this system, and enjoy it more...

  3. Hello;

    How big of a psu, and what type of graphics card ? Just to let you know this system is a slim factor system, and would I have to change the box, and what do you think about the BIOS that I can't get the system to flash it, because I'm not Adminstrator ???
