MW 800 RAM

Postby dpdit » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:32 am

Has anyone changed/added RAM to an MW800? I opened the box and cannot locate it. Having a continuous reboot problem. Ran CHKDSK, FIXMBR. Gets stuck at MUP.SYS. Think maybe the RAM, but can't find it. I know it sounds odd but ????
Thanks dpdit

The ram is located vertically along the CPU card (the fan side). You pretty much have to disassemble the cpu to get to it - to release the clips on the ram. However, as long as you take your time taking off the wire connectors, its actually really easy to remove the motherboard. Just take your time and watch to see where other componets are connected to.
