Seriously, what do you mean reset?
Technically, restarting the computer will reset the RAM, as RAM is volatile memory and cannot store anything once the power supplying it is cut.
Do you mean, how do I reset my PRAM?
To reset your computers PRAM:
Shut down the computer.
Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
Turn on the computer.
Immediately press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
Continue holding the keys down until the computer restarts, and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
Release the keys.
Resetting PRAM may change some system settings and preferences. Use System Preferences to restore your settings.
How do you restore settings in system preferences?
Is this a separate question, or are you trying to help the OP?
Unlike computers, animals don't have reset buttons. I'm afraid your Ram is gone forever.
You don't need to. Just let Mac OS X do its job. It manages memory quite well, without you needing to do anything.
Both. Read the post before mine.
Oh, ok. What that post is saying is that resetting PRAM may change some things back to default, and you'll have to go back into System Pref to change them again.
So... again- How do you restore your settings in System Preferences?
By changing them back to what they were. There isn't a restore function.
