The whole user interface is very slow, windows open almost in slow-motion... Is it possible that some driver updates were deleted during the CMOS reset? Do I need to re-update some things?
EDIT: A reboot seems to have helped, but I don't want to jinx it... I will keep you updated. Thanks so much again. It's not just the cost of shipping it off to get repair for something potentially minor, it's also loosing my computer for probably 2 weeks. That's never fun!
