hey folks, wondering if anyone has some insight here. my problem:

aluminum g4 powerbook. 1.25ghz. originally on osx 10.4.11. now on 10.5.7. ive got 2 sticks of 1gb ram.

problem: if i initially seat one ram in the upper seat, i can get recognition from comp. then, if i shift it to lower, i get recognition from comp. however, if i seat BOTH, or i start with the LOWER, i get NO recognition from comp.

after seating one upper, then moving to lower, then adding one in upper, and restarting twice, i got the comp to boot, but it only recognized ONE ram, even though both were seated.

i had previously done tests one each ram, and found them both to work properly, so im still assuming as such.

any thoughts? thanks for the help.

possible fix? thanks guys.
QUOTE Thanks
