I have had trouble with my iMac G5 crashing for the last several months.
Bad RAM was eventually fingered as a possible problem.
I had 256 Mb's in slot 1 and 1 Gig in slot 2.
I removed the 1 Gig RAM upgrade from slot 2
The Mac was stable.
I plugged the DIMM back in, it started crashing again.
I pulled both DIMM's and put the 1 Gig in slot 1
Machine stable.
Added the 256 mb to slot 2
Machine stable.
I am confused, you must have to add the larger DIMM in slot 1?
QUOTE Thanks
