I eventually built a new system, got things running to some extent, and unfortunately remember only a few of the dozens of things I had to get fixed. The most important & embarassing were on my end. I had forgotten to put myself in the video & games groups, so the video load-up would start & balk.
ysor123: Thank you for the response, but I'm afraid that runtime debugging, or even reading through memory dump, is far above my current capability level, or my current will-to-learn for a game... and I've never slopped wine on a keyboard. Though I have killed several mice with coffee, and one with scotch.
Best regards all.
