The bad news is my computer is still broken, as it has been for the past six months or so.

The good news is that, by throwing money and finally time at the problem, I am now in a position to definitively fix it.

I now have a second Core 2 based system - it's distinctly bargain basement (although still capable of playing games, thanks to the wonderful zandev donating his old graphics card). I can now use this to test components from the faulty machine one by one.

So I have a working modern machine again, and the pressure is off somewhat, which is good. When I eventually get the main machine working, the new machine will be repurposed as a media centre to plug into the stereo and projector in the living room.

I have named the new machine "bagpuss" in memory of Oliver Postgate.

You do realise that now you've called it Bagpuss, that everyone in your flat can only be awake when the computer is switched on?

That's going to make things difficult, I suspect.
