    I did, and I am. My CMOS won't keep its settings. That is the only problem I am having right now though. What is your board doing?

    I tried e-mailing him, but he hasn't gotten in touch with me.

    I started a thread for us Celeron1000GHz in the SETI forum. You may want to take the time to post over there with your problem.

    EC-PC is a stand up guy, but I am not sure how late it is where he is.

    I believe he is a nice guy, and I'm not accusing him of anything, but a reply to my question would be appreciated. Since I'm not the only one with a problem, this is going to the top.

    What BIOS versions are you guys using? I have been all over bp6.com looking for problems like this, but you two are the first I've seen with them.

    I heard that the late week 30's was great for celys. About that mobo. I had that same problem with the cmos Ryan. I didn't even mess around. I just sent it back. I don't know if they shipped with bad battery or what. I think there was a bad batch. Mine had the plastic levers. Anyway, unless ec-pc is a dealer, your going to have to contact abit, which could be a time consuming process unfortunately. That is unless ec-pc is willing to handle that for you? Good luck. I guess if you want to save yourself the trouble though, you may want to just pick up a battery and see?

    Thanks for all the replies guys. EC-PC got in touch with me via e-mail, and everything is cleared up. I'm going to exchange the board with him for another one. All is well, and EC-PC is a standup guy. He also sounds pretty busy, so I can understand why I got overlooked.

    Hey guys, I didn't mean to say you guys were accusing EC-PC of anything
    I only meant to say that by reputation, he is a okay guy and that it might be late where he is (and thus he might have been asleep). Just trying to keep things calm

    I guess I forgot to use smilies in my earlier post
