Sad Mac Face & error code 040090
This one got sent into me for repair. I'm getting a Sad Mc face and error code 040090. I don't remember what this code indicates. Anyone have an idea?
04XXXX = Memory test - Mod3 test Memory chip failure
We could have similar problems and may be able to help one another in finding a solution. First, where are you (I'm in Australia)? Second, do you get the sad safe following the "dong", and before a disk is inserted? And third do you understand the other possibilities that Oldturkey03 suggested (nonsystem disk in the default drive etc). As far as I can tell none of these are relevant because the 04 prefix to our errors (mine is 048360) means a RAM chip on the logic board.
Looking forward to your reply.
Replace the RAM Chips..
I hope it works :)
