Friday the 13th of July, 2007, seemed to be all that one can expect of it!
I shut my computer down on that Friday and tried to revive it on Saturday, to no avail! It just started to boot but then went off, then on again, off... on..., etc.
The experts think this is either the motherboard or the power-supply. But they were wrrrrrrong
It was just one of the mem-modules!
How do you diagnose that? Easy: just unplug one of the two mem-modules, then the other. if the computer runs again (with just one module) swap this for the other:
- If the computer just reboots now: it's the mem-module
- If the computer happens to run with either of the two mem-modules: it's the motherboard.
So with me it was just one of the mem-modules. So out goes the defect one and the computer is now running single channel on one 1GBmem-module! Oh boy, does this slow down certain operations
This is proof, that a single Gig of RAM is not enough to run todays computers/software efficiently (I'm still running on WinXP)!!!
