    Apple's hardware test gave me this error for the memory

    2MEM/4/4: DIMM1/J1601

    Is it my memory slot or the ram itself and wich one is the J1601?

    Emac 1ghz

    Hard to say just from that, but I'm guessing the RAM in DIMM1 is bad, not the slot itself.

    Thanks I needed some second opions cause I reseated the good ram that was in DIMM0 to DIMM1 and returned the bad ram for replacement hope this helps if not then it must be my motherboard?

    If the problem still exists with the new RAM, it's *possible* the DIMM is bad, but I feel like DIMM problems like that are pretty rare. If the problem persists, take it to an Apple Store and see if they can't better diagnose the problem for you.

    Ouch what do you mean the DIMM is bad and how?
    My emac is out of warrnety as I had it for 4years and it would cost alot of money to repair.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it...I've never had a bad DIMM slot nor have I heard many (any?) stories of DIMM slots being bad. I can almost guarantee you it was the RAM. I really didn't mean to sound an unnecessary alarm :)
