Re: Mega ST4 working but only showing 2mb

Re: Mega ST4 working but only showing 2mb

No it didn't help unfortunately. The socket did have a lot of bent pins, which I have sorted out. I am starting to wonder if this is the cause, as prior to the ram removal everything worked, albeit at 2mb. The pins as is will make good contact with the MMU but I am wondering about the MMU adaptor, a...
