    Hello,

    For christmas I bought my girlfriend 2 gigs of RAM and a 7200 rpm hard drive for her Powerbook G4 15", 1.33.

    My questions is, should I add the RAM before the new drive? After? Or should I just go ahead and swap the RAM while I'm replacing the drive? Is there a recommended order that I should follow?

    Thanks in advance

    the RAM switch is easy, go ahead and do it, book back up with the old HD to make sure the new RAM is working. Then tackle the HD. It will be easier to troubleshoot if anything goes wrong when you do one at a time.
