Performa 640CD Won't Run DOS after 52 Mb Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Upgraded my Performa 640CD from 16 Mb of Mac RAM to 52 Mb of Mac ram. The ram for the Dos portion was 32 Mb before and after the upgrade. After upgrading, the Macintosh System 7.5.1 portion seems to run without issue, but when I try to boot into the DOS portion, I get a blank screen. The DOS portion was working before the upgrade. Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Try removing the logic board, reseating everything, and cleaning the edge connector.  My LC630 requires that step at least once every time I change a component, has been like that for years.  I think something in the edge connector circuitry is a little flaky but once it works it will continue to work just fine.
