Ok now i'm getting somewhere.
I was looking at that unmarked 8 pin connector FOREVER and never saw that its two 4 pin connectors put together.
It looks like everything could be good after all.
WOOT we now have beep codes people.
The system condition lights detected the CUP, then DRAM, then when it went to check the vid card but because its not in there i got a beep code.
Well I only have about 30 min to play with this and see where i can get before I have to go to work.
I'll check back in with you guys tonight and let you know how things go.
