I bought a mini in february, and installed an ebay-bought stick of ram that went bad, predictably. It worked all right for about three months, then apps would randomly crash, etc. Then finally, last week, it just went kaput. Then yesterday I bought and installed a gig stick from crucial, and i'm getting a bizarre result. When i start the computer, the grey apple with the white background comes up, then the "welcome to macintosh" thing, and then it gets weird. After about 2 seconds of the welcome to macintosh, it fades out, leaving only the blue screen and the little rotating dial. Than it goes to a black screen, and at the top it says (assuming my name is Bat Masterson): Darwin/BSD (Bat-Mastersons-Computer.local) (console) login: After asking for the login it asks for my password beneath the login. I know my password, but what is my login? My real question is, how's my computer? This doesn't seem healthy. Any input, other than that i should have had apple install the ram, is welcome and appreciated.
