I have an iMac G4 800MHz with 256MB factory installed memory.

I've recently bought a new memory SDRAM 512 MB SODIMM PC-133 and installed it in the slot following Apple's guidelines. Everything clicked properly but when I turned on the computer and run System Profile the slot shows as empty, like no new memory was installed.

Can you please help me?
Did I buy a faulty memory or did I install it wrongly?

thank you

Have you tried to reinstall it? You really need to push the chip in pretty hard.

Same problem as below with the same model iMac - SODIMM installed in user slot and it's not showing up in system profiler.

I replaced the internal 256MB with a 512MB, this seemed relatively easy compared to that process.

Any ideas why it's not showing up?

Thanks for any input.
