my laptop, powerbook g4 1.5ghz 12 inch encountering some issues upon start up... REALLY SLOW almost freezing.
im considering RAM upgrade... but aside from that, i was also considering also reboot (like factory setting using the disc)...

What operating system are you running (i.e. Mac OS X v10.x.x), how much RAM is installed currently, and how much hard drive space is left?

I have a 15" Powerbook G4, installed two new memory cards (2 X 1024 MB) so that I would have 2GB of RAM. However, after installing them, when I turn on the computer and click "About This Mac," it says Memory: 1GB DDR SD RAM. Is it not detecting both cards? How can I fix this?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

okay... kahlil88 thanks for the reply lol sorry i wasn't on in a while to responed to your original question...
My 12 inch is 1.5 ghz... 512 MB RAM (perhaps upgradeing to its max which is 1.25 GB RAM)... free hard drive space is about 20 gbs... sometimes lower... but ran better lower than it does now?!! and im using 10.4.11...
like i said really slow start up... and my school has everyone running virusscan sh*t and when i open up activity monitor, like 5 of them are running... eating up a lot of space on my RAM.
would it be solved by reverting to factory setting using the disc? any suggestions before i take drastic measures?

yeh... tried... tried to delete it completely from my computer to redownload (so only one ran? since school requires it to log onto their network).
only way to delete this software is through terminal... but apparently i can't access it... the icon is gone, i guess i might have deleted it on mistake? (im assuming i can get it back via disc?)
