Looks like it isn't reading the chip properly because it's unlocked.

The new one I bought works perfectly fine. I guess that was just a cd drive.

Question: Can you guys link me to a new gpu and maybe a 2 gb ram card that'll work on my board and keep price below 300 please. >_>

Hi Neil. Here's an idea. Go to Best Buy or your local computer store or do a search online for game computers and check the new price for the same capability. Before you buy, try to find out from the seller why he is selling. If you offer more than 50% of new, you are definitely over paying. Hope this helps.
