Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop
This is just a narrowing down process to determine where the exact problem is. This could be a processor problem, but I really think that it's with the memory. You can narrow down the problem to a bad chip, and which chip, if you put only one chip in at a time. The machine will run on only one chip, it does not need both, and by putting two in you will not be able to determine if it's a bad chip or which one.
Check and clean the second slot to be sure that nothing is up in it, and check the processor for the proper seating. Then try the machine with only the first chip in the, no chip in the second slot. If none of the chips work, new or old, in either the first slot or second slot by themselves, then you know that the problem is elsewhere, and that you may have damaged the processor in changing out the memory. This is the process of elimination that any decent tech uses in diagnosing the problem.
