RAM can't just work it's way loose ... can it?
:confused: or :mad:
A PC, the one that drives the whiteboard in our ICT Suite has been in place for 3 years without incident.
I discover this morning that it won't boot - 5 beeps = RAM problem.
Pull machine out (it's an HP small form factor mounted under the desk)and discover the case is not closed properly (which arouses suspicions)... and the RAM is clearly not seated properly.
Reseat and everything's fine. Question is, which :censored: did this? I have very few technically competant adults here and I cannot see the girls having the opportunity. This is most likely to have occurred during the holiday... though heaven knows why nobody commented on it not working yesterday.
PC now secured in place with cable ties.
