    Ah, the sweet spot.
    Well, all the reading I've done so far indicates that the MSI-6167 is a very stable board. MSI has discontinued it, but there are still bios updates for it on their website, <A HREF="http://www.msi.com.tw/support/bios/oldbios.htm." TARGET=_blank>http://www.msi.com.tw/support/bios/oldbios.htm.</A> <BR>Flashing a new BIOS may help.<P>So I think that it's something like a BIOS switch that got futzed (a highly scientific term, I know) like superbypass, or a funky driver that got installed, most likely the 6.42. Try using the official 6.31 drivers (on our downloads page!) for the GeForce and see if that helps. Failing all of that, you will have to do a complete rebuild of the thing just to get the gremlins out.<P>Good luck!<BR>BM
