    I have this MB and was cleaning the cpu fan with a vacuum cleaner
    nozzle. When I was done I tried to reboot the computer and got all
    kinds of wierd errors (blue screen, shutting down after windows xp
    screen appears). Any ideas on what to try. I checked all the wires
    to make sure I didn't knock one loose.

    Check for missing jumpers. Maybe you sucked the CLR_RTC jumper
    off its header.

    Be aware that devices like vacuum cleaners or blowers, can generate
    static. I was reading, that moving air with dust in it, is a good
    way to generate static.

    Also, you can try reseating the RAM. Pull it from its socket, and
    click it back into place.

    It works now. I reset the BIOS and everything works fine!
