IÂ*looks like somebody running a computer in Canada and not caring

To make the story long, in reality, I've had the problem of grayed out
options for maybe 3 months and not much time and incentive to look
into the problem. Since I have a fairly noisy fan ($60 casing
including PSU) and I'm just keeping an eye open for decent one that

do essentially the same thing."
As for myself, I, of course, have no idea.

This is certainly a nightmare!

The CPUÂ*is an AMDÂ*Phenom IIÂ*X3.
Thanks for your help. I was far from sure I'd get some on this one.
