Asus have a post voice reporter

What is weird, if something fails post, the operating system cannot boot, failing post is if you have something broken

Asus are an exclusion to that rule, they randomly do crap and fail at booting.

it always starts and runs with no probs, apart from the graphics problem im having. but im waiting for my new psu to see if that sorts the prob. apart from that my system rocks. . although xp and microsoft suck hairy balls.
