    Unfortunately, no. I feel like she may be Obi-Wan Kenobi in this situation. "Help me Emily, you're my only hope!" hehe

    She hasn't been on in a couple days so I assume she is off for the weekend. I'm going to try disabling USB3 when I get the machine back and I'll also try a spare PCIE card I have. I have a feeling the only remedy is a new BIOS update or perhaps I'll have to try a different motherboard. :(

    It's also very odd to me that the video card doesn't work in the proper PCIE slot.

    Major update!!

    I put my old Nvidia GTS250 in the pcie2 (x16 lane) port and it booted right up. I then put his 6870 into the pcie2 port and it was dark; there was no signal to the monitor. I put my GTS250 back in and it posted right away again.

    I ran SWTOR for about 10 minutes and rebooted the machine twice with my GTS250 in without issue. I'm going to try putting my personal 6870 in just to be certain that it's a defective card and not just an incompatibility. Will post back soon.

    Running my 6870 in the top slot right now. Booted right up. I'm going to issue an RMA with newegg tomorrow if the issue doesn't come back today. I think it's safe to say that it's a bad video card, what do you think?

    I just thought I'd stop back in quickly to add some closure to the thread.

    The machine has been running flawlessly for two weeks now on a replacement (RMA) video card. Case closed.
