Long time no read 😉 I've got some spare time so I decided to tinker a bit with my 286 which I built up a while ago.
It has this board (got it via ebay from amoretro):
https://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/N/N … I-286-4200.html
CPU is a 286 10MHz i think.
plus a Trident TVGA9000C and a Winbond W837787AA I/O card.
hdd is a WD caviar 2540 with 540.8 MB (used anydisk to make it fully accessible).
OS is DOS 6.22
Unfortunately, randomly the PC shows "RAM PARITY ERROR, CHECKING FOR SEGMENT ADDRESS" and then it shows "OFFENDING SEGMENT" plus some garbage because appearently it freezes before it can finish to print the address on the screen.
I've run the tool "checkit" and did run extensive memory tests (10 passes) and no errors were found. also on the HDD no errors were found. all the other tests were successful as well.
anyone got an idea what i can test/what could be wrong?
