How did you upgrade the hard drive - a clone, a fresh install, migration wizard? Have you tried swapping out the new RAM for the originals? Verify the new disk from your installation discs. Try a hardware test as well (press and hold D key at startup with your install disc in the drive), that might give you some clues.

Another thing that I recommend following a hard disk upgrade is to do a PRAM reset. This is done by pressing and holding Command + Option + P + R when you turn it on, and then continue holding until you hear the system chime twice.

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!

The SSD needed to be formatted Mac OS Extended (Journalled) a fresh install of your operating system from the discs and then update from your original drive via MNigration Assistant. Cloning does not work on an SSD simply slows it down as you may be witnessing.

What brand SSD is the next question?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
