I agree with Ms. Pirt that service from
Nicolet can be problematic.

We have a MEDASONICS CDS transcranial doppler unit
(Medasonics TCD was taken over by NICOLET some time ago)
and have been trying for over two months to obtain
the BIOS settings for this unit.   Nicolet does not
appear to be able to find documentation for this unit that
will enable us to get it set up.

I realize Nicolet did not manufacture the CDS unit
but at this point they are the only source for this
info and they apparently do not even have a single
CDS unit (using the 386-SX25) in their service stock
so the BIOS setting can be obtained.

Sorry to post this here but felt a follow up was
in order.
