    Hello all,

    I installed my new RAM and now my machine seems to be lagging really badly and jittery. When I type this the letters appear on the screen in pairs but well after I type them on the keyboard. It's like a second or half second behind me. When I scroll web pages it's jittery. Any suggestions???

    Ah the wonders of technology. I rebooted the machine and did the memory test. After it scanned about halfway I stopped it because it was taking so long. I rebooted again and everything is cool.

    Boy was I freaked! I thought I just broke my iMac! :eek:

    The good news is that I didn't! :D

    Good job..

    Glad to hear you were able to resolve it on your own. I have 4gb from OWC also and haven't had a lick of trouble going now on my third week as a mac convert. :)
