I would say the RAM was probably a bit buggy.. although usually you would most likely have been experiencing kernel panics too..


I'd maybe try buying RAM from somewhere like Crucial.com or OWC.com, they seem to be the most reliable when it comes to RAM...

What model iBook do you have? I'm guessing a G3 or early G4 since you say you had 1 module taken up with 256 total)

Maybe go all out and get a total of 768MB ram (if your iBook supports it) and see if that helps...

Exchanging the harddrive is a fairly tricky job and I don't think that's the issue here since those apps are RAM intensive, not hdd intensive (they aren't reading/writing tons of data to the drive, they're calculating stuff)...


Hope this helps!
