Comp seems to run great. Other than these 3 things and I"m not sure how they are related. I cannot upgrade the bios with intels express utility (just says: bios upgrade was unsucessful read the readme file to do something).. I cannot use my fdd (double clicking the icon without a disk says insert a disk.. when a disk is in and I double click icon.. says same thing).. lastly I cannot install any of my PCI cards.. no settings for anything PCI are listed in the bios and when booted with PCI cards installed physically.. nothing at all is detected and obviously nothing works. I have an Intel D845GRG motherboard with 1.7gig Celeron chip. If any other hardware spec is needed. Just ask No sound is really bothering me! lol Thanks!
