|I removed the RAM sticks and cleaned them with a pencil eraser. I inserted each separately into each of the sockets repeatedly. I still get the same error of c0000218. |
I pressed F2 to enter System Diagnostics and ran Start-up Test with these results:
Memory Test Passed with 100% (3 GB) of memory testing OK.
Primary Hard Disk Self Test Passed
SMART Check has Hard Disk Passed
Upon returning to System Diagnostics I pushed F3 to run Run-in Test with these results:
All the same from above, plus the Run-in test saying 3 GB system memory OK/Passed, Quick test failed to start #10008- Replace Hard Disk 1 (in red) rent test item, SMART Harddisk Passed.
Then again in System Diagnostics I pushed F4 and these are the results:
Quick Test failed to complete, #10008 - Replace Hard Disk 1 (in red) rent test item.
Full Test stopped at 71% with #10008 - Replace Hard Disk 1 (in red) rent test item.
SMART Check SMART Hard Disk Passed.
