Even if the cdrom is set to the "first boot device" shouldnt it still load from HDD after it tries the cdrom? And no I am currently running 1 IDE HDD, so no RAID.

Not if there is a bootable image in the cdrom device it won't. If that isn't it then I am at a lost. Where did you get the 165 from, is it new or is it someone else's that maybe abused the chip? If so maybe the chip is bad, but again I dunno.

And yes youc an try to clear rest all the settings to default, do it in the bios thought not by clearing cmos.
when you say "reset the ram and VID card" do you mean remove then reinstall?

Ok I will try to reset the RAM & VID card. It is so weird. Now it runs pretty good, but it still will not do Orthos. Like I said before, sometimes it doesnt even through an error, it just minimizes, then closes automatically.
So there is no weird BIOS setting that must be changed to run Dual Core?
The most significant change I have made is going from 1T to 2T, that at least lets me load into windows.
I am curious if maybe my RAM has gone "bad"? I will be putting Opty144 back in tonight, and see if that is the issue. But first I will re-install RAM & VID card.
Thanks everybody for your help.
Please keep the ideas coming!!
