The ability to print off the full slate of bios settings (including what "Auto" is doing), and/or access that information from within windows to print off from there.

Tweaking memory would be soooo much easier.

Since LCD monitors have been made, I have dreamed of a case that would b "L" shaped and a monitor up to 24" could be mounted above the "foot" of the L.

Of course, this dream case could hold any mother board that the user wanted - replaceable mb tray for future form factors.

Other Concerns - Wishes:
With the ungodly weight of cpu heat sinks lately, does anyone think that the industry will move to mb standoffs for the mounting of cpu coolers?

+1 sswilson: MB speaker to have mute function in the BIOS/Win. Control Panel for those who don't want the beep sounds.

I'm going to vote for some type of self diagnostic program or Hardware piece on a Main board (kinda like how your engine computer knows something is wrong) so we can help troubleshoot faster and save on wrongly RMA'd items and such.
Or have the diagnostic programs built right into BIOS/EFI.

no more blue screens, ever..

if that isn't possible, I wouldn't mind having a better dump system for that, easy to locate and navigate through and set with timestamps, so you can look for patterns.
