I've just built my son a new pc all by myself.Had a bit of trouble cause the IDE1 and 2 were labelled wrong in the motherboard manual and it wouldn't boot from floppy but it turned out that it was cause the floppy boot disk was knackered.
Anyway it's up and running smoothly now and I can't believe I've actually done it :cool:

I wanna build another one now :cool: :D
The finished item....................

Well done, but you have to watch it as it can become an addiction, an expensive one at that :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
