  1. They do. I have the NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller as well as 1394 Net Adapter. There's also an NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator. All drivers appear to be up to date.
  2. Resolved. This is true. However, I'm still struggling in an effort to get the ethernet to work. Any help would be, as always, hugely appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Update: The rig started right up with peripherals attached. I had to reset CMOS settings and I meant to get my BIOS so I could put it in my sig. I'll do that a.s.a.p. Anyhow, WinXP booted without a problem. Everything seemed to be in order EXCEPT my ethernet. I tried to reinstall the drivers via the LanParty disc I got with the board originally bit it didn't seem to work. I've double checked all connections and at this point, I'm out of ideas.
  4. Awesome. Thanks, ExRoadie. PSU connected, the rig started right up. Albeit, I had no peripherals connected (monitor, keyboard, etc), but at least I have power which is more than I can say with the original psu. You guys rock harder than a million granite quarries. Thanks for everything.
  5. Also, I'm assuming I should not expect the rig to boot up just because I installed a new psu, correct?
  6. Got my new psu installed. I'm currently hooking everything up but before I try a boot I need a reminder on which slots I should have my RAM in (orange or yellow). I had given the rig to our IT Dir for a CMOS clear and I see they're in the orange slots. I don't remember if that's where I had them originally or if they were in the yellow. Thanks all.
  7. Whoops. Did I screw the pooch a little here or is this going to work? The psu I ordered with top-mounted fan: My case with no top-mounted vents: Is this going to work or no? Can I mount the psu upside-down or is that worthless?
  8. Thanks all. You've been most helpful. Surely I'll be back with more questions at some point.
  9. This seems to be a winner, and while nearly double what I was looking at price wise in the Antec, per the 'Recommended' thread, more stable and dependable. Is it overkill if I'm just running a single 6800GS vid card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817341001 Another question I'm embarassed to ask: Is there a difference between 24 pin and 20+4 pin? Thanks again
  10. Thanks tasr. I'll take a look at some of the others and see what's what. I'm sure I'll be back with more basic questions. -m
  11. I am going to try the new PSU first. Could someone please confirm that this unit will meet my needs? It is on the list of recommended units however, as I've mentioned, I'm completely new to all of this that I'd really appreciate a more educated opinion. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817103937 Also, brace yourself for what is probably the dumbest question you've heard this month. Ready? Here it comes: are PSUs generally universal in size? In other words, do I have to worry whether or not the unit will fit in my case? Ok, sorry for the stupid. In response to tasr's request for my BIOS; yeah, umm, I have no idea. I know where to look for it when the machine is on but with it not on, I have no idea. If it makes the least bit of difference, I've adjusted nothing since the machine's inception. Again, sorry for the dumb.
  12. Nevermind. I found a number for DFI San Jose. I left a message with RMA from which I am expecting no reply.
  13. Hi. So with our Dir of IT, we ran the gamut of CMOS clearing, using both the link in this thread as well as the user's manual from DFI. We came up with nothing. I have gone in search of a DFI support phone number and the only one I came up with isn't working. Can someone please direct me to a number that will work? Much appreciated.
  14. Gotcha. I saw everything at the top of the list that was 700+watts and assumed I was in over my head. There look to be a couple of good ~500W options at reasonable prices down below that will work. Thanks.
