Had problem with Crucial memory. They replaced it and confirmed that it had 'developed' an "eprom" fault. The replacement memory was not compatible and they apologised and replaced that with a batch that they assured me would work. In the meantime I borrowed some memory from a friend and the machine worked fine. The replacement memory arrived today and I swapped it over with the installed/borrowed modules. Nothing happened -no bleep,no start up. Unfortunately the borrowed memory doesn't work either now.With no memory installed the machine repeats one long beep. I have cleared the CMOS,removed the battery but still no start up on EITHER memory. crucial are blaming the motherboard but this seems too much of a coincidence ! It worked fine on the borrowed.
Anyway,when someone has a query regarding memory purchases,upgrades etc, the replies seem to scream CRUCIAL CRUCIAL. Now here we have CDL who has a problem with CRUCIAL memory and the only reply hes had in close to 24 hours is my bump. Is it that no-one has the faintest idea how he can cure his problem?. Surely not.
