How did you check that power was going in, I wonder.
I rather imagine that something overheated and that produces your condition; resetting the BIOS is a likely solution rather than a problem, but you want to recreate the old settings....

   Are you not getting a beep code?

You should try to carefully reseat your videocard, and have your speaker hooked up so you can hear a beepcode if you get one.
I might suspect your power supply was overused also; unplug it a while and/or try a spare (being careful to replug the videocard too.)
Then make sure things are cooled right before playing again.
Killer app indeed.

Parked my Truck the next morning it was dead , what could be draining my batteries

Could be anything in the truck. The best way to narrow this type of problem down is to due a parasitic draw test. This is done by disconnecting the ground from the battery. Then connect an amp probe inline between the battery and terminal. Watch the amperage on the meter, it should drop to 5 ma or less after 10 min. This is sleep mode. If this happens you either don't have a draw (drain) or you have a draw that is that can't be duplicated at this time. If your amp draw is still over 5 ma after ten min. Something is staying on. To find out what that might be. Without opening any doors or actuating any switches, start removing and replacing fuses while watching amp draw on the meter when you see the amp draw drop you have found the circuit that is draining the battery. Hope this helps.

Mold on botttom screen and gaskets of aGE dishwasher i used 1 cup of vinegar thru 1 cycle it is still there to be scraped off help

Using a dilute solution of 1 teaspoon chlorine bleach to 1 cup water, spray the screen and gaskets. Wait about 20 minutes to give the bleach time to kill the spores and bleach them. Then gently wipe with a paper towel or cloth towel. This should kill and remove the spores. THEN leave the door open overnight to let air circulate inside the dishwasher. If your mold problem disappears, continue to leave the door ajar once a week so that air can circulate. Mold does not live in open, airy spaces.
I hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my solution.
