    I installed 512 new ram to my ibook and it was great, but then slowed down . When I looked at the profiler it said the ram was not there, that the slot was empty. Any thoughts to what happed/ I have taken it out and put back in several times with the sam eresult, empty slot. :confused:

    You don't have it seated in all the way. You have to push hard enough to where you are worried about breaking something.

    Slide it in at a 45-degree angle HARD, and then snap it in.

    Yes you do have to push rather hard, I had the same problem with my Powerbook. It took a few attempts to get it to recognise the new memory.
