Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
One of those days. My main desktop machine -- the one with 5 hard drives, and all my hardcore software on it -- woke up dead.

Well, I've had trouble with it on and off for a good while, so first, I moved all the parts to another machine that I have that's got a similar motherboard. Everything worked again! Hey!
Then, I tried pulling the RAM from the dead machine, since I could then have 1.5 gig of ram. Things got bad real fast! Oh! the RAM is bad.

Long story short, I moved everything BACK into my studio machine, including the RAM from the backup box. So I'm back in action with my original setup.

Which just goes to show, I guess, that RAM can pass the startup scan and still ruin your day.

But I still have the old machine, only now without ram. Anyone have a gig of spare 184 pin DDR simms they want to give up cheap?

I have a 512 MB module, it is a kingston KVR266X72RC25/512. Never Used, I bought it for my wife's machine without looking closely at the specs her dell needed, and this one was not supported. If it would work for you make me an offer! I paid $44 for it about six months ago, and it sits here useless to me. For the life of me, I can't remember what was different about this module than what her system required, but shortly thereafter we replaced both of our desktops with laptops. Other numbers on it: P727825-1233900 and 9930280-002.A00

I actually have some RAM I pulled from a couple of machines before ditching them. I'll check and see what they are

Someday I want to wake up dead. That sounds COOOL.
