How can an intelligent person . . .

. . . adequately express the level of DIS-respect that someone like seth:
(1) brings to the table, as his only contribution; and,
(2) deserves, from others, in return.
Obviously, there is NO form of electronic communication -- none whatsoever -- between a CPU (or the IC's and bus) on a mainboard, and the inert rubber feet on a computer case.
Just as obviously, there is ACTIVE communication, between a CPU and mainboard, and ANY other IC-containing component, in a computer.
So, just in case there might have been SOME sort of process that triggered what we used to call a "do-loop" (when I took computer courses back in engineering college, in the 70's), or some other type of interacting error between the CPU and some other component that is inserted into the system as an intact and modular subassembly, I just plain tried swapping components between machines (since I had two identical machines going, with identical hardware). And that includes cables, hard drives, RAM modules, DVD drives, and anything else that could be swapped, just to try to identify and isolate a problem in case it arose from a malfunctioning cable or component.
Whether you can understand that or not, that was (and is, and always will be) an entirely logical, reasonable, common-sense approach. And it only takes a few seconds to try it. A DVD drive doesn't even need to be mounted in the computer, to do a simple SATA cable swap; it can be resting on some books next to the machine.
The bottom line is, I showed up here, as a person with a lot of scientific, engineering, and technical skill and experience, trying to raise a serious question and do some genuine good. Why? Because I grew up and learned a useful set of skills when kids my age worked on cars, and learned to use tools, so they could build things, and fix things. And now, I live in a wonderful home, with a pool, hot tub, ping-pong/pool table, 65 inch TV, and pretty much everything I want in ife, with a deck and a backyard that looks out over a wooded ravine, where we only see trees, instead of neighbors' houses, when the leaves are out, during the summer. To make life even nicer, I've got a beautiful, exceptionally intelligent, and remarkably successful wife, and two great kids (one a college graduate who has a professional career, and one still in high school, making straight A's). So, life is good, to a guy like me. I try hard, and I work hard. I can figure things out, and get 'em to work the way I want.
As for you? You really do come across as the kind of loser who lives in a basement and plays way too many violent video games, where the only goal is to keep shooting more and more imaginary things. The kind of loser who spews snide, sarcastic, and snarky comments on boards like these (and in every other place where he thinks he can get away with it), to try to vent some of his frustration and anger which grows out of the fact that no one will pay any serious attention to him in real life (and with good reason).
Instead of contributing anything with any value, or utility, or benefit, of any sort, in this thread, you have done your level best to abuse it, damage it, and drag it down to a lower level.
And, on top of that, pretty much every "diagnosis" you have ever made has been just plain, flat wrong. In complete seriousness, you really do seem to have a serious problem, with cognition and reasoning, which just makes your snarkiness even worse. You're just not coming up with any accurate analyses, or correct answers. And, the kind of combination you're showing, where incompetence get smixed with arrogance, really is a toxic combination. Working with a lot of people over the years, I've learned to deal with incompetence, and I've learned to deal with arrogance. But the kind of peole who combine incompetence, with arrogance, really do end up causing nothing but trouble, and problems, and the only way to deal with them is to get away from them.
Dude, I've got better things to do, than to deal with a snide, snot-faced snark like you. You're not going to change. So, just go fsnark yourself.
This thread isn't getting any better. I'm gone. Bye.
And, BTW, genuine thanks to anyone who contributed anything of any actual value.
