When you say check for extra standoff, do you mean an extra standoff that might be touching the back of the board and possibly causing a short?
If it boots into Windows, you have no problem.
I installed that 10.5 bios last night...at least I think. I put the files on a USB stick and used the...M Flash I think it was and selected it off the USB stick. It updated and rebooted but didn't come back on. I tried to power it back on a few times and it wouldn't turn on fully until I unplugged it and let it sit for maybe 2-3 minutes and then plugged it back in and turned it on. I even switched from bios 1 to bios 2 (bios 2 didn't boot either) and it's on bios 1 now which I believe is the 10.5 version but maybe I should use the method in your post and try to update it again.The PC posts to Windows no matter what. If I have a video card plugged in or not, unfortunately it seems to be because the motherboard doesn't know it's plugged in
