I've tried the whole reseat cables, unplug USB devices and PCI cards thing and it still acts up...
    It could be that the over heating took the processor or ram with it. Try a different RAM stick, and if nothing, maybe try another processor. My bet is the RAM is fried and need to be replaced.

    I'll hook up my CD/DVD drive today when I get home from school and run Memtest86+ to test the RAM. If it checks out ok, I'll stress-test the processor, but IDK if that will tell me anything about the processor though. If it's the processor, it's not much of a loss. I had that processor laying arouond for a while. I'll just check eBay for another.

    Once you have a established setup, its easy to find parts. When I bought my AMD Turion 1.8ghz< i did it when they were fairly new, but paid $100.00. I then killed it about 6 months later and replaced it with a 1.9ghz version for $45.00.

    If only I could look at eBay from school... Most stuff is blocked, I'm actually surprised they haven't blocked this website, too. But, I have looked at what's listed on Google Shopping, and it appears as though I can pick one up for about $45. I want one identical to mine(Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz with HyperThreading Prescott) and some more thermal paste, but IDK if it's my processor yet....

    Well, it cost $50, but I got it done. memtest86+ showed the RAM was OK, so I got on eBay and got something close to what I had. Mine was an Intel Pentium 4 with HyperThreading 3.2Ghz/1Mb cache/800Mhz FSB. What I found was an Intel Pentium 4 with HyperThreading 3.2Ghz/512Kb Cache/800Mhz FSB. I don't think there will be much of a difference, but we'll see. [advertisement]I also got some Arctic Silver thermal compound this time. I used it on a friend's gaming PC I helped him build, it kicked @$$ compared to the other stuff! [/advertisement] LOL

    On the plus side of things, I'm trying out Centrafuse. I love how I can actually connect my iPhone to it through BlueTooth. I also love the smoothness(is that even a word?) of the UI. I love RoadRunner(RideRunner) too, but it's a little harder to manage and setup. (Now if I could just find a Tercel or a Toyota skin for it... )

    I don't think it will be a noticeable difference either. Lets just hope it is the processor and not the MoBo (knock on wood).

    Yes smoothness is a word, lol. Wait till you see Centrafuse 3, that is supper smooth and alot easier to use. I use CF because I have multiple screens and sound cards and CF works with them all. I have never tried Ride Runner, but it doesn't work out of the box, users have to tweak it to their liking, but if your into that, it will be a good venture. I just wanted it to work with no tinkering, its bad enough the hardware needed to be tinkered with so much.

    Yes, but CF3 isn't out yet, is it? I'm more than hoping it's not the MoBo, I'm praying it's not the MoBo. This one took 3 RMAs to finally get one that would actually POST! TigerDirect was kind to me on that. I pulled the processor out and noticed some pins were bent and one was missing, so that could be my problem there, but idk

    No it isnt, I am patiently waiting for it. I am happy with CF 2 though. Well I hope it was the processor also. I know when I RMAed my MoBo it took almost 2 months to get back.

    Also, I ordered a MadCatz PS3 keyboard on eBay. I got it today, with the USB charging cable, but sans the wireless USB receiver... I emailed the guy who sold it to me(gamernuts), and I'm waiting on a reply.
