comment What is my motherboard?
Go to dell.com and then the support link. Pick your hardware model and where it asks for the service tag put the number in. It will show you details of what was originally in the box.

comment Dell Studio MT Beep Codes
Thanks, I've looked through the service manual and don't see a reference to beep codes. It's got lots of good info on how to swap out parts though. I'll take another look to make sure my eyes aren't missing something.

comment Norton Internet Security 2012's Firewall Is Blocking My Internet Access?
Are you up-to-date with patches etc? It wouldn't hurt, if you're not, to update to the latest Malicious Software Removal tool from Microsoft. Concur with techie007, have you tried what Symantec suggests?

You don't even need to type in delete, you can get away with just del. Look at how much quicker you can disconnect!

comment Modifying/Testing Image/AnswerFile
I think you're safe to copy it to any location as long as your process points back to the file. You might also want to take a look at the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. It's fantastic when it comes to imaging and capturing reference computers.
