RM Ascend 1010CFW Windows 7 restart error
Over the last couple of months I have been experiencing issues with our RM Ascend 1010CFWs. We have around 80 (180 PCs in total, made up of new....ish Stone and RM PCs - these are fine) of these within the school and after they have been on for a certain amount of time, they will restart. When we went over to Windows 7 I upped the RAM in these to 2GB.
My first thought was that they were over heating so I took them apart cleaned them out and replaced the CPU themal paste with Arctic Silver. This has not helped, I have also tried turning off hardware aceleration in Flash Player, I have updated what drivers I can (finding Windows 7 drivers for these PCs is........impossible), all I am down to now is re-imaging the PCs. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I have check event viewer when a restart has taken place and it has proven as no help.
We are only a small school and these PCs are around 7 years old, but due to budget cuts we cannot afford to replace them at this time, so I am currently looking for ICT grants that I could apply for. Does anyone know of any grants available?
