Ha ha! Thanks Canis. I just in-n-ns-t-ttalled it. I realize you guys are all pros here but we all have to start some time! lol I actually did call AMD (related to my other monitor rotation thread) and . . . Honestly, I've never experienced such friendly customer service! I've been on an old (now don't laugh) PIII, and I remember years ago when I had to call Intel for some obscure reason I vaguely recall relating to CMOS and met with the most condescending attitude. He couldn't wait to hang up on me.
This is my first AMD processor, and I feel well and truly welcome as one of your newest members of the AMD family. Like your wonderful CS rep said, "There are no dumb questions," and he encouraged me to call AMD if I have any questions about anything. Thank you Canis. Oh my God . . . I'm heading for the 21st Century at last! What a thrill!
Cheers friends. Wish me luck.
