Hi, my trust Mega2560 just failed on me today :sob: I was playing around with some EDO ram (which I managed to get working actualy :) ) Then, when I wated to upload a new sketch to test the speed of the memory, the arduino IDE compiled the sketch but the upload failed and the IDE crashed (it seemed to be stuck in a loop since one of the cores of my CPU was running at 100%) I tried resetting it and unplugging it and pluging it back in but nothing worked :sob:
Here is the exact error the IDE gives me before crashing (can't get the text, the IDE is completly unresponsive):
When I do the loopback test, the message comming back is garbled.
Here are a couple of other informations if needed: Arduino Board: Arduino MEGA2560 R3 Windows Version: Windows 10 Enterprise (version 1703) Computer: Asus ROG gl702vm (16Gb ddr4, i7 7700hq (64bit), GTX 1060, asus SSD) IDE Version: ARDUINO 1.8.1 - 2017.01.09
Hope someone can help me fix this board :) I have to say it's quit old, I bought it at least 3 years ago and I have abused it quit a bit.
One more thing: If I need to replace a component of the board, I have experience in soldering/desoldering SMD component, so it shouldn't be an issue.
Thanks :) !
