[techtalk] System CRASH - one solution

Greetings all,

With intermittent faults, memory (SIMMs, DIMMS, etc.) is the first place to
look. Next, large scale chips like the PCI bus manager (device that manages
all) could be the fault.

The fault behind the cause is of course HEAT.  Heat sinks and more air
movement around heat sources could increase life times of systems and even
monitors (even mine have a fan, power taped off heater voltage).

One could 'live' with the fault, swap in half the memory bank with new
devices (testing to find which bank is the fault) or upgrade the system

Best of luck, RBBenson
