    Can someone please tell me what this error code specifically means; it relates to the memory section of the diagnostic, I know that much.

    2MEM/3/4:SODIMMD/J25LOWER

    well, first, i'd go about this mac - profiler to check ram, to see if you can identify if one's bad, or both is okay...

    then turn off the computer, take out one ram, turn it on, do hardware test.. to determine if the one you have installed is good, if it's good, repeat procedure to test the other ram (actually, if you have time, i'd test both of them anyway)

    edit: what motivated you to do the hardware test to begin with?

    wow, I am really lost. Why would I go and take the RAM out of my laptop, and more importantly, how would I do that? I am not well versed in that department.

    I did the test because the machine was acting up, i.e., freezing, beach ball, and safari kept quitting.

    okay, well, try this (i dont have my mac now so i dont know the exact wording)

    left upper corner apple - about this mac - more info (which brings up profiler) - memory ... take a screen shot or something, does anything indicate one ram is bad?

    I see what you are saying now. I can handle what you are asking now, I thought you wanted me to yank the RAM out.

    Oddly enough both lower and upper status say they are OK, but the apple hardware test I ran failed it, twice now.

    SODIMM0/J25LOWER:

    Size: 512 MB
    Type: DDR SDRAM
    Speed: PC2700U-25330
    Status: OK

    SODIMM1/J25UPPER:

    Size: 512 MB
    Type: DDR SDRAM
    Speed: PC2700U-25330
    Status: OK

    lol, okay, well now i want you to yank the upper ram out, and run apple hardware test to make sure that ram is indeed bad.

    and repeat the procedure for the other ram, to make sure it's good.

    actually.. before you do that, why don't you test your ram using... ramber
