Hi,
Just scored a Compaq Portable 286 machine from Crag's List- circa 1989. The green monitor seems to be bright and clear. It has a 5 1/4 360k Floppy, Tape Drive and Hard Disk (unknown size). When powered up, it has the following error:

000001 2400 201-Memory Error

Hopefully its just one memory chip that I can replace. If anyone is familiar with these and has worked on a few, any advice on (which and where its located) would be appreciated. Its seems to have a large memory card inside as well. Thanks

Found the Maintenance and Service Guide (c01135592.pdf) on Compaq's support site. This should help determine which chip it is.
