Success !!!

I then tested all the chips one by one, by replacing them one at a time into the new bank. Thanks to the diagnostic card I found only 2 of the chips (upon 16) where out of order.
I really like your description of the defective chips.. "where out of order." You have to be located GB!! :) :) :)
