I had to reinstall W2K on my wife's system to get DNS resolution working again, and now I hit another problem. I was testing my new Epox 8K7A to see what gave the best memory performance. I was using 2 256 MB DIMMs, but I wanted to see if using only 1 made any difference. So, I shut down the system, touched the power supply to discharge any static, and removed the memory from DIMM slot 2. Powered back up, and no POST. I've removed everything piece-by-piece, and it won't post. Different processor, no post. Every possible memory config with what I have, and no POST.

Fortunately I got it from NewEgg and they are taking it back with no hassle and no restocking fee. They even have the 8K7A+ now, so that's what I'm getting for a replacement.

Now I have to put my A7V back in for a while....
