symptom: didn't boot, bought blind from eBay
cause: main RAM was bad; replaced, board started up perfectly
time spent: 30 minutes; 20 fixing it, 10 selling it afterwards

having a chuckle at pearl-clutchers losing their minds that someone would buy a board that looked like an easy fix & sell

Glad you got it and were able to fix quickly. $1K is quite the gamble for most folks

How am I supposed to gauge how mad I am if I don't know how much profit you made? Am I a little salty? Stomping my feet? Did you make enough that I have to sell everything and quit the hobby because you literally just ruined it?

Very nice! Was looking at it too, but not comfortable to spent that much for a board without any info on how its broken :)

Glad the gamble worked out!
