I did some searches and couldn't find much to help me so any information, advice, or witty banter would be greatly appreciated. It appears the lower Ram Slot on my 15" 1.25 has decided on an early retirement. Spoke with Apple switched my 2 factory 512's in and out of both slots more times then I care to remember. So it looks like I will be sending my PB to Apple later this week. My first question is has anyone else had this happen with their powerbook and had it fixed with no issues afterwards, or could this wind up being a ghost chase where they fix this one problem to only have another one pop-up a few days later? My second question and I will call this my "I'm not really that Shady of a person but...." question. I would say that 90% of all my software was purchased legally including Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, and many others. However I do have a program or two that were "given" to me and not purchased. I am going to back-up everything up to my G5 but should I go ahead and remove all the software that I did not purchase or would I be safe leaving it on there? Not even sure if its legal for Apple to go snooping through my computer but just wanted to see if anyone else has had this dilemna. Thank you for your time and any information. Really I am not that Shady! Sorry for being so long winded.
