When I click on the Apple Icon and click "About this Mac" It shows that I have 1GB of memory installed, which I do, but at 0 Mhz. That can't be right. So I ran the hardware test twice and no problems found. I even checked the hardware profile and it reads 667 Mhz. Possibly a glich?

I have an iMac Intel Core Duo 2Ghz w/ 1g of memory.

I would say probably a glitch.. but I will ask any way... did you install the ram yourself or get it from apple?

You could try zapping the PRAM.

Since Macs don't have a BIOS with user configurable memory timings, I believe they either detect it from the module or use a fixed CAS timing (not sure which). In this case it obviously can't detect the speed of it.

Not a big deal to me really. It runs just fine. Its a Viking value memory stick, self installed. I did have 2 x 1g sticks at one point, then I started having errors, did a system diag. and found the one of the sticks is bad. So I returned that one and never really got a chance to get another stick. I plan on upgrading using Apple memory this time 2x1g sticks and sell the Viking so their matching.
