Hi Solonowarion. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I didn't get anything, and it turned out to be a bad motherboard. I noticed the bent pins when I took apart to return for an exchange perhaps with a different motherboard. I bought this mobo from a nationally well-known computer shop in Canada. Although the staff didn't believe me, I know this was a defect because I remember seeing a corner (of where you put cpu on) to be slightly in different color/shade during my first unboxing. I wondered for a sec but didn't make a big deal out it. Motherboard came in open box, what was I thinking? Anyway, that's why nothing really worked. A lesson learned in a hard way.
Moving on, would you suggest a good motherboard for visual programs and bit of game? I may not shop from the same store this time, but I really need to replace my 10 year old computer.
Thank you for reading my thread.
