How Impaired Is PC With Failed Cache Memory?
We run a MARS program to refurbish older PCs for non-profits. Recently I ran into two PCs that show failure of cache memory when diagnosed with Smith Micro Checkit software.
Does this make them just slow, or are they inoperable or unreliable? One recently seemed to run XP fine but the cache memory test failed. Is cache memory replacable on a motherboard without major surgery? Is it worth the trouble or do we just salvage parts and move on?
