Lets address the video. Display is more important.
If your only using one PCI-E you do not need to plug in the 4-pin power connector pg. 20 in manual, see notes no# 4.
However it is unclear if this is true by reading your manual.
On other boards the 4-pin 12v power connector is not needed un less you are running 2 PCI-E cards.
(You will have to test this statment).
Disconnect the power connector pg. 20 in manual, see notes no# 4.
Remove your installed PCI-E1 video card & re-seat it, (making sure it is seated evenly). (If you have a second PCI-E card do not install it.
Start PC & enter bios. Check that your bios is set to PCI-E for video display & not VGA. Pg. 32.
While in the bios disable the audio. (for now).
Set Plug & play Aware O/S, to No. (This allows the bios to set IRQ's rather than windows).
Save & re-start the PC. Did you get video? No?
Shut down the PC & connect the 4-pin 12v connector for the PCI-E1. Start the PC. Did you get video display?
Other reasons for not to getting video display.
CPU not seated correctly / bad or bent pin. Socket locking arm not engaged. Thermal grease not applied. HeatSink not locked.
1. Video card needs cleaned. (use house hold Alcohol & cotton sawbs). Clean copper contacts. Clean out PCI-E slot.
2. There may be a short between the board & the case.
3. Connection is loose, (either end of the video cable).
4. Connected to the wrong video out-put. (Switch cable to second video out put on a dual out port card).
5. Have a bad video card. (Swap it if you got another).

Memory check.
1.Can include not correct voltage for board.
(you'rs must be 2.5v). No higher.
Over clocking memory in bios. (Set to Auto)
3. Bad DIMM. (remove one DIMM if two is installed), (swap slots in-between restarts).
4. Download free Memory Tester (click the link).

Give the stuff above a try Stephen.
It's late & I'm wired.
Have a good day!

Have Singer 2000. Repaired some jeans last week worked great Today it will not pull the fabric . Feed dogs do not seem to be working. Cleaned dust ect. from bobbin area. New thread in bobbin and...

Is it possible that the machine is set to "Buttonhole"? That will disable the feed dogs so you can make the buttonhole the desired size, on most machines. Try selecting a different setting on this machine. it looks very intricate to me and seems to me it shouldn't give any trouble, so a setting is my thought.
Hope this is of help, Please rate and comment, Thank You,

Hello There: I have an Acer Monitor in Canada. Will this also work in the Philippines re they are 220 voltage? Thanks David The Monitor is a AL1706

You'll likely have to use a power converter that will convert from 220 back down to 110 (along with the plug differences).
Here are two links to two different quality products that should work for you:

How to make a resume?

In terms of how, as in how to make the document itself? You're going to want at least a word processor. OpenOffice works wonders if you don't have Microsoft Office.

In terms of what to put in it? To simplify, you want to let the employer know what you've done, where you've been, with some specifics in a page or two.

For a bettter and more detailed explaination, read this article. It's great!
