I just built my first PC

Everything was going great.

I put the pieces in, connected the cables, fired it up and got the beep I was so scared I would not get. I did the BIOS thing.

I loaded Win7, Lightroom, Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium, tried it out and WOW fast. Everything is instantaneous! No waiting.

Shut PC off last night and fired up today and got this message...

"Enter any 11-digit prime number to continue"

Please help. What should I do?

More than two. The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better "’. So I installed Linux.

Looks like the first thing installed after win 7 should have been a good anti virus.

Yes it was a joke except that I did just build my first one. All good so far and I have Lightroom3 and CS5 Creative Suite Design Premium up and running and ...
WOW! Instantaneous!

I just ran Window Exp. and my baseline is at 7.6 and I have not overclocked yet.

I am one happy camper. A bit more working tweaks and I will have to be careful not to turn all my images into a movie. I may be afraid to Google because it might break the Internet.

Maybe a shot of Snake River Whiskey will do it?
