I'm getting the following diagnostic failure on my Latitude C800 (1GHz, A23 BIOS):
SODIMM Thermistor - Sensor Range Test : Fail Result Code: 3900-0626 Msg: Temperature sensor out of range, temp=0C, min=10C, max=100C
I reached this result after the following events:
Does anyone have any further insight on this one? For example, if this points to a specific piece of hardware, what is it, and what's its part number?
I've looked at other forum articles with similar diagnostic failures. Most appear to be associated with a bad BIOS version (A19?), but it appears that we're long past that, and I believe they all reported "temp=255C" or such, not 0C. One other forum article suggests it might be the CPU/heat sink, but it's not clear whether the solution was simply adding heat conducting paste or completely replacing the CPU/heat sink with new ones as well. And simply based on the title of the failing diagnostic ("SODIMM Thermistor"), I would blindly guess that the problem was closer to memory (which checks out fine) than the CPU (but I don't have sufficient internal system knowledge on this system to know). So I seem to be at a dead end without some further insight.
