@amigang

if you can't fix it to enjoy using it then sell it to someone who can fix it and enjoy it

@klx300r

Thatís kinda my thinking, if I can fix the issue this time and get back to a fairly stable system, I keep it, but if I either canít/cost to much to get repaired then I think I might sell it.

@amigang

First thing I would try is removing the memory chips and replace one at a time probably swapping them to the opposite slots.

See if the issue remain and if they do...

Then I would buy a new SSD and new cables and rebuild the system from scratch and see if that fixes the issue. I would probably buy a new overkill PSU as well. These items aren't huge expenses and are the parts that usually cause issues. Hell maybe even replace the memory as none of these items are hugely expensive.

If after all of those steps have been performed you still have the same issues then it may be a mainboard issue and then you have to decide how much hassle you are willing to continue to live with.

My opinion is that once you paid what you did for the original machine then swapping parts out should not be a problem as you want to maximize your investment and a crashing system that makes you unhappy is useless..

@outlawal2
so i did break down my problem and my current workflow of trying to fix it here
https://forum.hyperion-entertainment.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=4755

Quote:
so been enjoying my x1000 again recently, but I did get the odd crash or what seemed corruted files, anywho, thought it was about time I open up the old girl give it a good clean to see if it fixed the issue, it did'nt, it made it WORST :shock:

So at first I got no boot sceen...nothing, rechecked every connection, nothing.

saw three led lights, so thought, might of move or hit the CMOS battery, (even though I did'nt remove it for the clean) anywho, nothing, then replace the CMOS battery, now I get a boot screen

But then it takes me to command line, and complains about lack of memory, "Failed to load amigaboot.of: Insufficient memory"

so played about with SATA connections, if I put HDD to SATA2 and CD Drive to SATA1, I get a little further, up to the OS boot menu, but on selection, I then get a bunch of error message say this or that is missing to the point it just locks up. then second boot up, Im back to "Failed to load amigaboot.of: Insufficient memory".

Tried the remove RAM on one side trick, do you think I need a new SATA cable and HARDIVE? I was thinking about getting a SSD for the machine, start with a fresh install, do you think that would fix it?

Why does a simple clean where I barely touch the dam things can brick the system, never had a computer where moving a SATA cable seem so sensitive, and so many of the Troubleshooting tips seem to be about SATA. did Varisys cheap out?.


So i order some new SATA cables, Air Can to blow out any dust, a BR2023 coin battery that apparently are better. try this out, if that fails, i will try and get some new Ram sticks to try.

I put the OS4.1FE disk in just to see if it will boot from that.

If all the above fails then I will need help. Im not likely to get around to really doing this until the new year now anyway, as this time of year my work time goes nuts.

PS: thanks for the interest and offers for X1000 nice to know it is in demand. one of the small reason I want to keep it, is knowing its such a rare computer. I do like OS4 (yes even over amikit xe) when it works, just worry about the future of the platform being stuck on PPC and the whole A-EON vs OS4 team that seem to be happing.

@amigang

Just thought I'd chip in. Earlier on in the year my X1000 started displaying symptoms you describe. In my case it was a random crash on boot when AmigaBoot loaded Kickstart. Sometimes I could reset and it worked next boot. Sometimes it crashed while I was working on Workbench. At one time I got it stable by moving ram to opposite slot or even swapping with a spare stick. These were not solutions.

It had one bad week where I really needed to fix it. The battery went so I replaced it. Good for a few days. I had clipped sata cables I bought prior and it was time to install them. Somewhere along the line I had also purchased some RAM as I long suspected RAM issues. So I was prepared to replace major items. I replaced sata cables and also replaced ram. I bought 8GB to have some spares in future and for now put 4GB in.

My X1000 became stable right after. Clean boots. No strange HD R/W errors. So, good luck. Yes the X1000 buyers market is as dry as a nerd on a hot chick dating site and people are still interested in these machines. But I hope you can get it going again for your personal use as I can see you would like too.

@amigang

I would keep it. Check the "easy" things you can check as others have mentioned. Power Supply, Ram, coin battery. The X1000 is kind of rare,
it doesn't appear many were made, and it is a very decent system. The
PA Semi CPU is pretty fast and it has Altivec which is a bonus.

I have an X1000 and it has been problem free. The only downsides to the
system is that the onboard ethernet driver never materialized and the firmware needs an update to support the latest Radeon cards to take full advantage of the new 3D Stuff in the Enhancer package. I hope both of those features eventually come out.

Otherwise my X1000 is fast and stable. I still enjoy using mine! I hope you
can get yours stable.

Yeah, I remember the last time I bought something that 10 years later I was still hoping for updates to unlock features.

Oh wait. I've never actually done that.

"and the firmware needs an update to support the latest Radeon cards"

You should need new CFE, you just cant see CFE while booting on monitor.
(Well maybe from putty).

The newest Radeon HD card will also get support hardware decoding video, so maybe we don't need RX cards.

No game on AmigaOS needs the newest graphic card.

Since games with advanced features are coming out soon, like Blackfag, I recommend keeping your X1000 for now. The fun is just beginning.

@amigang

I am going to vote Yes.

Given the reasons that you have listed, and the fact that it appears as if other people maybe interested in your Amiga, go ahead and get rid of it.

So I said I wouldnít have time to look at until next year, with new sata cables, battery, really careful clean, itís all working again!

So not quite ready to leave os4 yet, just got es2.1 see how that all plays out, may get dvplayer if I make a bit of money on my eBay stuff Iím going be selling, see how this year plays out for os4 market and how reliable my system is this year Will be all factor as to weather a remain a os4 user, but for now happy to be a os4 users again.

@amigang

Iíve had this same conversation with myself several times this past year. In the end Iíve decided to keep on keeping on, although I donít use my OS4 machines super often like before. But Iíll want more than I can get for selling. So Iíll keep them and use them when I want. Not intending to invest much in this ecosystem going forward, since there are other areas of Amiga activity that are holding my interest these days.
