Hi

I wonder if any of you knowing what the problem I'm having. Every time I launch apple profiler and looking up system details with "more info" button and it kept quitting every time I launch it!! The rest other of applications going okay with no problems and no freezes or crashing. I'm using Panther OSX.

On my machine that I received, it has 3 different 128mb ram which total 384mb. One has viking symbol -SDRAM PC133 SDRAM, One got no name - SDRAM PC100, one has Apple logo label on it - SDRAM PC100. I had quite had difficulty adding a real apple logo 256mb PC100 SDRAM from Beige G3 on this alone but it get erratic behaviour like some apps quit and get a message like Please restart, hold down the power button few seconds....and whatever it is. I cannot add extra memory like Hyundai 32mb PC100 SDRAM.

Any suggestions?

Regards

I have tried launching System profiler from Utilities and still it quit.

I know the pc shop down the road and they sell OEM 256 PC133 SDRAM and they wouldn't be compatible for G3 B & W Tower?

I will have to run repair permission.

did you restart after repairing permissions? you may have to reinstall system profiler.
if you have the discs to install panther, you can use pacifist to extract the .pkg file that installs apple system profiler, and reinstall it. or do an archive and install to install the os again leaving all your apps, settings, etc the same.

ok, downoad pacifist from versiontracker.com, insert install disc 1 of panther, open pacifist and click 'open mac os x install packages', itll read from disc 1, then itll ask for disc 2, then disc 3, then disc 1 again, have them all handy, when its done reading all packages, itll give a list of stuff, I think under the essential applications drop down arrow will be apple system profiler somewhere, or it might just be called system profiler, when you find it, click it and click extract to on the top, save it to your hd, when its done, quit pacifist, ehect the disc, open the file you extracted and follow installation instructions.

Hi

I downloaded the pacifist from versiontracker and that handy. But after I found system profiler and extracted to hard drive to replace it. I launched again but stilly ol thing kept unexpectedly quit after I click About Mac and click "more info" and that where it quit. Very very weird!!! Sound like I can't do anything bur reinstall the whole OSX again from scratch. :-(
