I am Stu Feld, the happy owner of a 755C (75MHzDX4/540MB HD).
I recently decided to upgrade my TP to 20MB and purchased a 16MB
memory card from my local authorized IBM dealer. The card is a Viking
Components Platinum card (I5109/66G5109) and is parity memory. When I
picked up the card, I brought my pad in and installed the card on the
spot. When I tried to boot,
20096 KB Ok
appeared, but the machine hung with the floppy drive LED lit.
I then tried to run EZ-Setup by holding down the F1 key on powerup and I got
20096 KB OK
and it hung without the floppy LED lit.
I then tried a different card, thinking that possibly the card was bad,
but with the same effect. Next I pulled the card out (started up fine)
and ran EZ-Setup and disabled the parity check, thinking possibly the
cards had non-parity memory. Restarted the machine, and all was OK
still. Then, put back in the card. Now, it gave
20096 KB OK
and hung without the floppy LED lit. I am at a loss as to what is
going on, and I would appreciate any assistance. EZ-Setup gives the
following info about the machine:
Revision Level 04
Power Management level 1.12
Setup Version 1.01
and several serial #s.
