Check out the Academic Price of Windows XP Pro at Newegg.com. I got the Academic upgrade (good if you have any version from Windows 95 to present) to XP Pro for $84. Also you can also try Academic Superstore.
Here you can find the new Bios. However, this sounds like a hardware issue that you may need to contact Sager or your reseller about obtaining a RMA. Is sounds like some problems reported earlier form others and that your GPU needs replacing.
Edit: THis damn bellsouth FTP site is not working for me (even though I just checked on it with FireFTP and it says its fine). If you PM me your e-mail address I'll be happy to e-mail you.
Did you try my suggestions in your other post?
In the camera options go and disble the autoexposure and set it to your own number. (Video Capture Filter) You may need to download driver cleaner (google it) to completely remove the Omega Drivers. I just want to note that my webcam works fine (after adjusting the filter options) and I have had no issues related to Omerga Drivers.

Yes. i bought my 4750 in September knowing that pci-e was coming out, but because I mostly do DV editing it would not effect me as much as gamers. You said that you had it about a month. if you want a newer card you should try to return it immediatly to get under the 30 day return period. however, you should have done your homework before buying. A bunch of people on the forums are waiting for an AMD/PCI-E combo.
I have had issues with the windows releases since 1.02 with using the "switchproxy" extension. Do you have it installed? When i used it, Firefox would freeze on my home page for about ten seconds then continue to work normaly (except if I opened a new window).
I do not use my sytem for much gaming, so I know there are many people here that can give you better advice. That being said, a good place to start would be to install omegadrivers instead of the ATI 8.04's. they are available on Omegadrivers.net As many people have said on these forums, the mobility 9700 will be the limiting factor, not the processor.

All it is doing for me is turning on the caps lock and makes a beep. The program won't run and no windows come up. Any ideas??
I tried to get it to run and I only had the same result you did. (beep, but I did not notice the caps...
