Well, I totally lucked out and replaced the only bad RAM chip with the first socket I installed.  It was U17.  :)


Here is a pic of the socketed RAM:

I used a spare RAM chip from a console that I performed the 5v RAM upgrade on in the past.  It is interesting to me that two different brands of RAM were used on the motherboard previously.  It looks like original work so I am guessing it was original like that.  Anyone know differently?


Here is how the screen looks now:

In Topic: Cleaning old hardware

I recently bought a Wii. It would not read a disc so I opened it up and was horrified to find that it was clogged up with many dead roaches (whole, legs, body chunks). It was SO GROSS I almost tossed it. But I cleaned it out instead. It works fine now. But it was the worst I have ever seen. I think someone had spilled a bit of something in it at one point, too. That might have attracted the roaches. Ick.

Yup.  Good ol' soap and warm water.  I remove the case parts first.  Just don't scrub on any painted areas or decals too much.
