    Re: Board battery?

    Try humouring them with the serial number, maybe they need it to look up the exact model and tell you the right answer...

    I'm guessing it won't work if you have any RAM installed in a channel A slot. You will probably have to use other RAM channel(s) if you want the board to do anything other than beep at you with a RAM...
