II europlus crash after a few minutes
Another strange problem
My II europlus crashes 1 or 2 minutes after I power it up.
If I keep at it (switching it on and off, reseating chips) it ends up not coming on at all, just a screen of random characters , as if there is a ram problem.
Spent a few hours last night and gave up. Just could not get it to boot at all
Today I switched it on and it boots fine, but again after a few minutes it starts to crash
I have recapped the power supply and tried several similar power supplys to be sure it is not the PSU.
Is this a capacitor problem - namely the 2 caps up by the power connector?
Dang! - these old machines are TEMPERAMENTAL
