Where the Archimedes is at

Well, with the Archimedes, I’ve reached the point where I believe I’m stuck until I can get some ROMs burned with a RAM Test image on them.

What I have checked so far:

  • All RAM chips have power.
  • None are getting hot.
  • All lines to all chips are showing activity. (This took a LONG time)
  • The MEMC chip is clean and the socket for it is clean.
  • The system is consistent.
  • My keyboard / mouse adapter works well.

If I can work out which RAM chip is faulty, there’s a good chance the system should just boot. Unless, of course, the fault is somewhere else 🙂
