So I'm not going to cure it by doing this, just diagnose the problem? If I
had a perfectly working machine the expected result would be that either
slot and any combination of chips would successfully boot?
Found it. Now I need to go out and buy a small Philips. :)
Just a point of clarification. I'm looking to swap the memory modules about.
You're not asking me to lever the actual chips off the boards. Right?
Windows is still reporting 1 Gig of memory does that mean it thinks it's got
memory it can't actually access (assuming it is the memory)?
Re: Fan Problem with Multivision Nexus (Compal CL50)
singly, in both slots and it booted up fine each time. Windows reported the
correct amount of installed memory on every occasion.
I'm not sure if Crucial's System scanner reacts oddly because of the
obscure board and memory (Kingmax). When I only had a 512MB module in the
slot closest to the hinge it would report that I had a total of 1024MB with
512MB in each slot. If I ran the test with only one module in the bottom
slot then it reported correctly.
I've found that if I max out the CPU at 100% for a while, the fan starts
running. But it only runs whilst I'm maxing it out.
Any ideas as to what I should do next?
