    I am back to work after some vacation and am trying to repair an arcade machine.

    Machine: crusin' exotica (made by Midway (sp?)) - the one with the numeric
    keyboard where you can enter an PIN ID.

    Problem: "Crashes" when tries to get record times. Causes a reboot and makes the
    machine go into self test. When the machine does not crash I get sh*t data [1] at
    high score tables.

    I've never worked at those machines but I guess they're like a video game machine
    or computer + monitor. It looks like a RAM problem. Has anyone here info on repair
    of arcade machines?

    [1] It looks like this:

    1 XXXXXX 00:00:00
    2 000000 00:00:00

    Could be that record times are kept in one of those little serial
    EEPROMS, and the problem is there. Should not be hard to find if it is.

    a lot of Midway games are hard drive based & if so you may have bad sectors

    set the drive as a slave, put it in your PC and run 'chkdisk'
