I fear my SOYO dragon kt600 may have died;
I got a stick of512, and was configuring my system - to get the best possible timings.
I was also sorting out some bluescreen errors, (which most likely had something to do with the timings - I was thinking)
Then it happeded;
I put my stick of 256 in alone.... nothing,
then I tried my 512, nothing, (I had reset the bios proir to this).
Then when I turned off, and turned on the rig once more... I smelled it! Something was burning.
I plugged out my rig in like 2 secs after it happened,
took out every PCI card and all,
looked down into the case.. made sure nothing was shorting
And gave it power.... I smelt it again!
At this time I took out the board completly, and put it on an insulated surface... andhave been trying everything since then... still nothing.
The smell kinda smelt like a bad cap... butI'm not sure.
Anyone know how to measure capacitance?
