    A guy on the AMD boards said I had to update the BIOS and another siad that is a last resort because AMD is bad about getting that right and I could lose the whole computer. :: sigh :: I have the $$$ invested in the CPU's. I hate to just not use them. I just put the 600 back in, connected it all and it is just fine.

    I be cornfused........ ::: sigh ::::

    Did you change the ribbon on the HD?
    there is no 80 pin IDE connected
    Maybe knock it loose?

    I finally got it. I had to update the BIOS. that was a first for me.

    The 850 is working good now. I will test the 750 when I get the chance.

    I will change over the wifes computer when I find another 'Slot A" MB to put in her machine. They seem to be hard to come, LOL

    Thanks for all the help.

    I'll be back.
