So, in the end, the problems DO seem to have been software-related, because a fresh install made everything work fine. A couple of quick bits of software install and it's ready to go for Erik. Just gotta move the desk up to his room, and once he's home, we'll have him clean off his old desk and figure out what we'll do with it.

Speaking of cleaning, geez, the amount of dust, cat fur, and little bits of junk behind that thing was scary...

Was/is it a Windows box and, if so, what version?

I don't understand why or how, but it seems like they sometimes just need to be wiped.

Quite true (WinXP). This, though, was a whole new set of symptoms than I've ever run into.

The gunk build-up is why we try to clean off/out our system cases once a month (it tends to be every other month, but hey - we try).
