The beep codes for this thing are no where to be found, even ViewSonic support can't find them. I was installing drivers and restarted, then I get 8 quick beeps repeatedly. I've tried four different sticks of RAM individually in each slot, and tried two different pairs. I took the hard-drive out... there isn't much else to do. I've tried it with and without the battery, on and off the dock. I'm thinking about buying another CPU for this before I go buy another main board. I just can't figure out what's wrong with it. I don't know a lot about laptop hardware at this level, usually I'm not replacing CPUs and motherboards. The CPU is BGA with an LGA adapter soldered to it, is that normal? Could it be that the balls weren't melted properly and repeated thermal expansion has just made the joints break? I can actually see the balls in between the CPU and the adapter it's on. How can I reheat the joints between the CPU and the adapter without destroying the CPU?

Does anyone know if this computer will support anything other than the CPU that came with it (L123A324 SL584 KP 800/128)? Does anyone know anything about this thing?
