There are two banks of four and each bank had different sized ram in it. 
I tried taking out the first four, the second four, swaping the banks, 
and then each bank individually again swapped. Still right to 212. Same 
thing it does if no ram is installed.  Right to 212.  The lose simm was 
in what I supposed could be the first simm socket. It may have taken out 
the slot and so, as you say, it can't continue.
