TC caused my RAM to explode.
« on: April 02, 2013, 05:17:06 AM »
Hi
Loaded up TC and it came up with a warning that RAM is dodgy then gave me a countdown then displayed BANG on the screen and seconds later my RAM did go up in smoke with one of the memory chips flying out of the empty pcmcia slot, missing my left ear by a few microns.
I can still hear the "woooshing" sound as it flew past.
Has anyone else experienced this?
