Thanks, George, and Randy. Good suggestions. In this case the only
scanbe sockets are the eight ram chips. I'll check them but I would bet
the RAM test in the diagnostics is the first beep. All the rest of the
sockets are already the Augat type.
Looks like I'm going to start disassembling the firmware to see what
that might reveal.
