i hadn't, actually. but everything else plugged into that outlet works
just fine, and it doesn't look like just the power cutting out. i'm
convinced at this point it's the motherboard or processor -- a friend
came over with the Ultimate Rescue CD (or was it Ultimate Boot CD?) --
tom's root boot; memtest86; the works. it fails on EVERYTHING. i'm
returning the motherboard -- looks like the new one was DOA!
