Got the new version of the Restore CD from Compaq, started the restore process, and wham! Crash-ola! Blue Screens, illegal operations, unrecoverable errors. Guess it wasn’t old versions of the cd that caused the crashes, eh? Well after running through various diagnostics for an hour or so with Andy, from Compaq, (who was actually very helpful) we ran into an error in the RAM. So tomorrow, hopefully, I’ll have a new DIMM to put into the machine, and then, maybe, we can restore it back to good working order. I wish I had an extra DIMM to test it with immediately, I really do. Spare parts would be wonderful, I swear! Alas, it’s not to be at this point. Maybe for my next project, I’ll try and find some spare Compaq parts. Anyone got any they want to give away?
