comment How to find out if slot or memory bar is broken
All very useful information, thank you: However, the server was ordered and configured from DELL and running fine for > 5 years (ordered 2009). I have never had any problems since today. For me that rules out a RAM misconfiguration. From what I can tell so far, that it seems to run fine with 6 bars, 7 bars gives an BIOS "mismatched RAM" error but still runs, 8 bars fail straight after switch on with beeps. No sign of dust or oxidation. So for me it looks like I simply have to accept the fact the boards is somehow broken. Thanks again for all the details above.

Will check the slot again. but would a slot oxidize with the RAM bar in? It was OK yesterday, but failed today.Also I have altered and added / removed the bars several times today, which IMHO should also clean up the slot somehow. However, I will check it and thanks for the hint.

comment How can I adjust the timeout for UNC network shares under Windows 7?
a) In my case "unavailable simply means" target computer of UNC path switched off b) timeout of 45s +/- could be (fits round about) c) SESSTIMEOUT is not in the registry and d) does not show any effect in my particular case when added
