I looked at the system again and sure enough it does not have the "oh's"
.  I have a few red oh's that I can put in.

Another thing, I noticed this system was installed with the pink foam on
the bottom.  I have seen this on one other computer before.  Is this anti
static foam?  It just seems weird to me.

I am going to also basically disable everything on the motherboard like
Erik suggested and try an add on video card.  This system is just behaving

Thanks for all the input,
