I have been having trouble with my old workstation, a True workstation, an IBM Intelistation M with SCSI hard drive that has been playing up.
Hard drive and memory passed diagnostics, So I popped in a old 10K SCSI I pulled from a dead Dell Workstation (Precisionm 650) when a recap didn't fix it. ut a lot of software would no install. A new install of windows went ok bI had two of those one a recap fixed it so I upped the memory to 2Gb and stuck in a second Xeon processor. I sold that one for $199 and of course then The IBM started having propblems and me with no spare. Turns out one of the two 1Gb DDR was going bad, bluescreens and reboots and getting worse.
So now I only had used 256MB memory and it is running OK with 1.75Gb instead of the old 2Gb configuration.
Murphy never sleeps!
At least now I can put my spare laptop away until the next crisis. The laptop is actually a faster machine than the workstation but 19" trumps 15.4" Widescreen.
That's my lesson for the day, Just becaus ethe memory test passes substitue anyway.
