Don't feel bad. I couldn't figure out why my printer driver wasn't installing. Took me 10 minutes to realize I had spooler off.

Swear to God av just woke up. Had a cup of Camomile Tea last night and was zonked out for 10 hours. Am hammered. Rough as out hear.

Took me 3 hours to figure why it wouldn't boot. I was trying to short the USB Header Pins. How thick. Anyways its up and running but still have a load of stuff to do when I'm paid to the machine. First off I want a better PSU than the 250W inside it as I only changed the Chassis for the Glits and Glamor of a new Case and the LED Fans. Also need to connect the DVD RW Drive and add a GPU after getting Ripped off thecableplace on play.com I don't have one. Really should of took it up with the Bank and not to mention Could upgrade to Win 7 while I'm at it.

Time for a Red Bull.

Hey, don't feel too bad. It took some of us (IE Me) over a month to figure out that my mobo was shorting through the case.
