It appears that there's a DIP shunt block on the CPU board where each shunt 
corespond to a row of DRAMs. You should check all 4 positions are shorted.

I think that the power-on test checks the first 128K RAM, then sees if the top 
location (? first location) of the next 128K works if so, it tests that RAM, and
repeats 128K at a time to work out how much RAM it has. So you may have
defective RAMs in the second 128K. 

I wonder if the crashing is due to RAM problems in the first 128K.
