Falcon - stripes only...

Postby damanloox » Sun Apr 22, 2018 4:41 pm

I'm trying to figure out where to start troubleshooting my Falcon displaying vertical lines only...
I don't see any FDD activity, I don't hear any keyboard clicks - nothing. Just fan starting up and the screen as on attached picture...
Any ideas where to start? I tried ctrl-alt-shift-undo (falcon actually only starts if I press the combination - otherwise I get blank screen)
VGA adapter is OK, screen is OK.

I would check / replace the RAM card first.
