SOURCE: G4 wont boot up

you poor little mac is hanging there eh, its having a kernel panic. which gives you the impression the motherboard has packed in. My G4 suddenly began doing this overnight, fine one day dead the next. Anyway i took it to a repair centre who said it was the board and couldnt get me one due to it being obsolete so to ebay i went. In went the new board and yeehah.. the same bloody thing occured. So after that i found the only way of it booting up was to open the case slightly just to get my hand in and push down on the processor ( not applying the pressure onto the board, but as though your trying to push the processor down toward where the drives are housed), This seemed to work but sometimes it would pop up the old restart you computer or the little wheel would just spin till i was an old man. so i removed the processor and sat for an hour with a magnifying glass and moved the pins closer together on the board. refitted and its been going strong ever since, Wierd i know, my cousin has been a mac fan for years and satin disbelief when i showed him how i booted it up. I have a G5 but just doesnt have the character my G4 has.

SOURCE: G5 dual processor keyboard freezes for 10 seconds or so

you might need to check the usb connections for the keyboard and mouse. and see if they are correctly connected, also to clean the connections with a q-tip from time to time. Also you might want to switch to another usb port. to narrow down the issue. Because if say you change to another port and it still persists, even when running a usb hub with external power, and even a external firewire hub with usb connection then the issue would be the com board for the usb and firewire. and hopefully the G5's usb, firewire ports are on a separate board that is then ribbon wired to the main board. because if its just ports ribboned to the main board you will need to get a new logic board. and that is not cheap. unless you still have your applecare. then just take it in to get replaced.

In call of duty ghost do i need to buy 1 whole 8 gig of memory


You need to have 6 gigs of free dynamic ram.(Not including that used by the operating system and any other applications you have.

The way that memory is organised in a computer these days is usually in pairs or DRAM (dynamic random access memory) sticks which are matched. This allows the CPU to withdraw data from both memory sticks in the same clock cycle (DDR double data rate) which improves the over all speed of the processing.

So legal combinations over 4 gigs which will use the dual channel feature on your motherboard will probably be.

2 x 4 gigs sticks = 8 Gig DRAM
2 x 8 gig sticks = 16 Gig DRAM

Below is the minimum specification requirement.

Note: MINIMUM Faster CPU better graphics card and More ram is better.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better CPU Speed: Info RAM: 6 GB OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better Sound Card: Yes Free Disk Space: 40 GB

A duo 1.5 will work approximatively at the speed of a 3.Ghz cpu, just a bit better

Ram speed-what does it do


Your PC support up to 4 gig of memory in 4 slots.
DDR 333/400 ram memory of 1 gig each.
So you need to know how much memory your system had.
Probably 2 gig.So the more memory the better will be the speed for run apps in your system.

I dont know wat sort of ram to choose for this board because i am wanting to put in x6 4 gig ram ddr3 memory modules


running triple channel memory with more than 3 DDR3 1600 sticks installed (4-6) cuts the memory speed in half. you have to run with 3 sticks at a time in triple channel mode or you will see a reduction in ram speeds.

OCZ is making some good 4 gig ram sticks. they have a 12 gig triple channel memory kit with 3x4gig sticks. you could get 2 of these kits and have your 6 sticks- 24 gigs total, but your memory frequencies will be lower- your ram access will be slower.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

4gigs ram


Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.

Memory upgrade problems


Try maxing out at 2 gigs and try again. It is possible that the motherboard can not address more than 2 gig. If that is the case, the extra gig will respond at the same time as another 1 gig set causing confusion to say the least. I can provide more details if required.

Lenovo memory problem


crucial wasn't the problem.
the problem was solved by me doing a bios update.
they shipped the unit with the pci configured for 1 gig.
not 1.5,2,3 or 4.
I had to go for broke and pray that the 63af08 update had something in it,they said nothing about a memory upgrade period!
Here are 2 links for the solution. WHEW!
