ibook 'dragging' after install of new dimm
Please see: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=243868
Ok, I have installed the new memory bought from mac (512mb) but now am having problems, the laptop seems to have some sort of 'drag' going on, everything I do shows up a little later than when I did it a few mintutes ago it even went to an extreme of almost crashing it was so slow, it had a kind of 'strobing' effect, I couldn't do anything so restarted and now it's just a bit slow. I followed the instructions very carefully and did not do anything different from what they said.
The new dimm is showing on the computer, but whats going on!
Also-now my airport card seems to be non-existant!(I guess that means I havent plugged it in properly?)

It could be a bad stick of RAM. Maybe take it out and see if things get better. If they do, then take the RAM back and try to get a replacement.
Some things are better mad...

To plug in the AirPort card on an iBook, you have to push it until you hear TWO clicks.
Open Utilities > Activity Monitor and see what's using the most CPU time (that's what causes the strobing/slowdown effect).
Also, have you tried an Open Firmware reset?
Reboot and hold down Cmd-Option-O-F until a grey screen with black type shows up (that's the letter O for Open).
Then type at the prompt:
at the next prompt type:
at the next prompt:
it'll say something like "flashing xxxxxx" etc and reboot. Often when you install new hardware you have to clear the PRAM and NVRAM for the computer to recognize it correctly.
