    did i miss somehting?

    So i went out and bought Wallstreet memory....2x256mb

    First of all....the only installation instructions i found were in french, and boy am i glad i can read pictures....=P

    Anyone have some english instructions for installing the lowwer module....?

    Now, another question....when i first booted, it gave me a system crash for an internal bus speed error......then i restarted without extensions....which took forever, then i restarted again, and it booted.......no issues. it seems to have taken longer though....

    ....if my judgement serves me.....the whole mac is running slower with 320mb of RAM, compared to the 64.....did i do something wrong?

    Is the RAM compatible with your Mac?
    A stupid question I know... But over looked some times.
    Is the RAM firmly in place? You really have to push it in.
    You also have to be careful when handling the RAM. The static charge in your body is enough to zap the RAM to death. Make sure you properly ground your self before handling any computer parts. :cool:
