Bad hardware?

Discussion created by Florin Iucha on Jun 8, 2010
This evening my tower started acting strangely. I have run the TWR_MCF5225X_example.mcp demo and I have seen the moving blinking lights, then I ran the TWR_MCF5225X_gpt.mcp demo but I didn't have any scope at home so I could not verify anything (however I saw the text written out to the UART).  So far so good, but after shutting down the computer and starting again, now I can't debug any more programs with ColdWarrior. I'm getting all sorts of GDI errors: "The Debugger cannot read memory" "Unknown protocol error". "ColdFire GDI Protocol Adapter: An invalid preference was passed to the ColdFire GDI protocol".  I have selected "Hardware Diagnostics" from the "Tools" menu and ran the "Memory Tests" and I'm getting the results below. Has my hardware gone bad? Help!
