But, any winter day, if I have time enough, may be I'll try! It should work, but verify with an expert, like JHEM. Pop the memory cover off, and pull out the CMOS cell (follow the two little wires). I think one of my 64M modules is no good, or at least it doesn't like its partner.

If I could put a system board from a 600e in my 600, then maybe i can increse the processor speed too? Track=true Although my specific computer is not listed, the FRU compatibility seems to match? Then it does the same thing over and over again! If I have to chage it, I might as well upgrade.
