   thanks for the info. 
   my comments re sata sdd and RAM were just info, 
not related to my problem. 
   does the box of RAM include some DDR2? 

   julie called a little after noon to let me know 
the technician fixed the power supply and thinks he 
should inspect the mobo; i brought the box to her 
late this afternoon. 

   more thanks,
