    I have a QuickSilver 2002 G4 (original chip was a 800mhz G4) and
    I upgraded the chip to the PowerForce G4 Series 133 1.2Ghz processor.
    Ever since I did this my G4 will not wake from deep sleep. I confirmed
    it was the chip upgrade by reinstalling the original chip and everything worked
    as it should. Is there anything that I can do to try to fix this problem?

    Here is what I have done so far to try to fix the problem:
    1. Re-installed OS X (10.2.6 serveral times).
    2. I have reset the PRAM.
    3. I have zapped the PRAM.
    4. I have hit the reset button on the motherboard.
    5. I have moved drives on the IDE cable and reinstalled.
    6. I have checked for firmware updates (got the latest).
    7. I have done everything that I can think is possible besides
    returning the chip.

    Please throw me a bone here.

    BTW, besides the sleep problem everything rocks!

    Thanks,

    where'd you get the upgrade chip? maybe visit their site and see if anyone else is experiencing said problems... and contact the seller?

    how long have you had the chip in there?

    Get used to it. Thats just part of how an upgrade card works. Every powerlogix card has this exact problem. Sorry.

    If you were folding 24/7 you wouldn't have to worry about any sleep issues! :D

    Have you tried a search of cpu upgrades at xlr8yourmac.com or maybe a search of said site?
    That is where I would suggest you go to see what others have experienced with the same upgrade
