Crash after RAM upgrade
I'm on a PowerBook G4 1.5Ghz. I just maxed out my RAM to 2Gigs (2 X 1 sticks of Crucial PC2700 (not cheap stuff). Was running great for about 10 minutes, and then BAM (see attached picture).
Let me back up a sec. Sometime ago (no idea how long ago), my computer stopped recognizing the 2nd of two 256 meg chips of RAM that came from Apple when I bought it (I didn't realize this until a week or so ago). So I have been functioning on only 256 megs of ram. When I installed the new ram, both chips were detected and running fine.. until the crash. When the computer crashed I was listening to iTunes and ironically started a thread here on tech-forums (I took a picture, but tech-forums uploader doesn't think I'm trying to upload an image file, for some reason..). ANYWAYS, now only one chip is being recognized (according to the System Profiler, only the "upper" ram slot has anything installed in it).
Well, it's been nearly 30 minutes, and its running ok. I'm considering swapping the memory chips to see if it is the cheap, or the location. But what can I do if the bay is bad?
