I like milk! :)
I am running Memtest86 v4.3.6 on the unit with the 1GB Panny memory installed. On test #8 and no errors yet.
Not sure what burn in program you mean.
I do like milk! :)

There is always something waiting at the end of the road, if you are not willing to see what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.

I ran Memtest for over 6hrs, 5 passes with no errors. The unit boots normally. Seems that it might have been the memory stick was not properly/fully seated. Pulling it and reinstalling it seems to have done the trick.
Main priority is getting FoxtrotGPS working in SolydX.
Thanks to everyone for all the help and suggestions.
L8R :salute:

After I posted about the CMOS battery and then came back to this thread... I was thinking that I have never seen a dead CMOS battery in a Toughbook... Even OLD ones. But I have replaced close to a dozen for friends in their laptops over the past 2 years or so in their old laptops. (Dulls & IBMs)

Glad you got this sorted...

I originally thought of the CMOS battery because of the errors on boot.
The unit has been working normally since I removed and reinstalled the memory.
