    on my mbp (older one)

    i got a 2.4 ghz and 2 gb ram. when i installed 4 gigs it started to lag to and i had more random issues that before. in fact i never used to have any issues of lagging with 2 gb ram. I have 10.5.6 and one of my friends said because i have a 32 bit.

    Any other suggestions? Has this happened to anyone before? Is it really just cause i have 32 bit and when snow leopard comes out with 64 bit, i would be fine and 4 gb would run better?

    thanks for the help

    Lagging in what way? Perhaps it could be faulty RAM...

    Test both sticks of RAM.
    put your 1GBs back in and see if you still have the same problems.
    Than put a 2GB sticks in one at a time (so you have 3GBs in your mac) and see if you still have the same problems.
