After $10 rebate, only about $18.

If all goes well, I'll be a happy camper. If not, then at least Amazon has a good return policy and I can say I gave the college try.

If it's a USB keyboard, reboot and go into the BIOS. See if USB Legacy support is on. If you notice it's off, it could be the system battery, which is easily replaced. But record all the settings you find, so that you can make changes after new battery goes in.

When the time comes, swap out motherboard and processor for new ones. That is the advantage of building your own system. Also, run Linux to avoid the retardation that is Windows.

An update... I got the sound card an installed it. Did the needed stuff (disable onboard audio, updated system bios, updated card driver).

But whenever I tried to enable Wave or Stereo out of the sound card (through control panel), that caused a crash (BSOD). No go!

Patience is a virtue. I ended up returning the sound card and then found a nifty program (for about $30) which is exactly what I wanted.

It's called i-Sound Recorder for Windows 7. Not only it is easy to use and does scheduling but doesn't even use Stereo Mix

i-Sound Recorder for Windows 7 and Windows Vista

Now I can easily record streamed broadcasts to listen to at a more convenient time.
