I finally mustered up time to take my iBook back to the store and have it looked at. They tested the RAM and it was fine, and they told me about the Apple Hardware Test, and everything came up fine except it said something like "Errors during startup" on the RAM one. Video RAM came up fine also. I called them back and they said that it is most likely a software problem. I reinstalled the OS a while back, and it helped for the short time thereafter, but now it's back to it's "good ol self." I am happy to say that the computer is growing back on me. :headphone :headphone :headphoneNo iMac.

Sorry about that, I went back and edited it to make it a little more understandable, but I think that version got deleted because of the double post! DOH!
It has spells of lagging severly, the fan running constantly, and the Dock has been dying a lot lately. Also, Dashboard comes up blank and I have to wait about 20 seconds for the faces and words and data to come up with the Widgets. Hope that helps, I'll elaborate more this evening, I have to leave now............No iMac.

Ok, I just got OnyX and let did everything on there that I could in hopes of getting this back to normal. It has not had any issue since I ran the "swipe" but it's not that much faster. My typing doesn't lag anymore though, so that's always good!
Is it possible that I'm just expecting too much of the computer?? But I know I'm not imagining the fact that it got slower shortly after the RAM was added....No iMac.
