Quote from: Bryce on 16:58, 10 September 21It's a RAM issue. Either the RAM is starting to die or the RAM IC isn't getting a stable supply voltage.
Quote from: ComSoft6128 on 17:29, 10 September 21Thanks for the suggestions @llopis but I'm not a hardware guy - if it becomes more of a problem than it is now the Plus will be off to @Bryce !
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 17:51, 10 September 21I'd actually take Noels advice and open er up and remove the 4 pin molex cable from the disk drive for test purposes.If you keep using it as is, you could risk further damage to the machine costing you more. Given that there's a major electronic components shortage crisis going on atm, is it worth it for the sake of removing a couple of screws, pressing three clips and disconnecting a cable?Your call of course.
Quote from: Bryce on 20:23, 10 September 21No, not really. Even if the capacitor got worse or the RAM failed completely, there's a very low chance of it damaging anything further. It's safe to use as long as it boots. Bryce.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 23:32, 12 September 21Fair enough but even just to figure out the exact problem, it still wouldn't hurt to disconnect the drive to test, right?
