In order for it to work.

1.Put it on your head.
2.Call tech support.
3.Smoke crack,weed, and tobacco at the same time for 1 hour.
4.Drink beer.
5.Do the Irish jig.
6.Call 911.

Intel is evil and their processors suck because they strip them down so much before releasing them.

Thanks Nine, it's nice that someone noticed my absence without uttering "who are you?"(shut up whoever posts right after me).
I've been too busy enjoying the finer points of having a good computer(went from a P166mhz to a Duron 800mhz), nameley Baldur's Gate II and Half-Life/TFC.
