a good possibility you just need a new ram chip, specifically the ninth in
the series, in fact, the parity chip. Really knowing nothing about
computers or electronics way back when, my Tandy 2000 displayed a "memory
parity error" on the screen in the middle of a chess game. I pulled out
the memory daughterboard, which granted was alot easier then working off
the motherboard, and desoldered what I believed to be the parity chip,
soldered in a socket, and plugged a fresh 4164 or whatever into it. Sho'
'nuff, it came back to life. Had to learn how to use a desoldering wick
and all. And keep in mind, the best way to desolder something is to add a
little solder first. It could be any of the ram chips though actually I
suppose, or another problem altogether. But I'm guessing it's likely
that. And one day I'm going to invest in a desoldering station. I'd have to
say a must if you're going to be working on this
