PowerPC :: 2 Different RAM DDR2 Speed Sticks Compatibility?

Oct 29, 2010

On my iMac g4 I've got 2 different ram ddr2 speed sticks in there. The standard 256mb apple shipping stick and a faster sodimm, (1.0ghz iMac). My question is will this work just fine, I mean it boots and runs fine or will I get compatibility issues later on?

OS X :: Upgrading RAM In MacBook - DDR2 667MHz Sticks

Nov 17, 2009

I am trying to upgrade the RAM in my white macbook from 2 GB to 4GB using the RAM from a Sony VAIO laptop. If I put both 2 GB sticks from the other laptop in, my computer turns on but does not boot. The screen never turns on. If i have one of the original sticks in, and one of the new sticks in, it boots up fine and the system profiler recognizes the new RAM and says it is in working order. Why can't I boot with both sticks in? They are both DDR2 667MHz sticks and are all working.

Intel Mac :: Use A 667 Ddr2 Memory Stick Instead Of 800 Ddr2?

May 16, 2012

My iMac currently has a 1Gig 800 DDR2 memory stick inserted and I was wondering if I can add a 1Gig 667 DDR2, or do I have to use another 800 DDR2?

Just wondering if I have to buy another one, or use the one I already have but has different speed.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6)

PowerPC :: PowerBook G4 Accept DDR2 - 667?

Oct 17, 2008

I'm selling my 2GB of DDR2-667 from my 2008 MBP to someone and they asked if it would work in the PowerBook G4? Would it work and is the RAM backwards compatible (to a certain point)?

PowerPC :: Single 2gb DDR2 Stick With Lower Ram Failure?

Jun 17, 2010

I have a 1.67ghz G4 PowerBook that has the dreaded lower ram slot failure. This limits me to 1gb of ram, though the machine works fine otherwise. My understanding is that this PowerBook does not accept more than 2gb ram..... So, my question is this: Will this PB not accept more than 2gb ram total, or will it simply not accept DDR2 larger than 1gb each, be it one or two??

OS X :: Safari Wishlist - Improved Speed And Compatibility

Feb 11, 2008

Here is my wish list for Safari:

1) Improved Speed
2) Improved compatibility
3) Enhanced stability
4) Cover-flow option for bookmarks, history, and downloads
5) Multiple search providers available from drop-down in Search Box (Amazon, Apple Store, IMDB, Wikipedia, Custom)
6) Search Box auto-complete/suggestions
7) "Mute/Volume" button for web audio
8) Downloads in drawer or tab instead of pop-up windows. Ability to search, quick view, and launch downloads within said area. Ideally, it would be contained in the "collections" section with history and bookmarks.
9) Ability to view/use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Pages, Keynote, Numbers and other files within the browser (similar to current PDF ability)
10) Phishing Filter

I know that an update to Safari will address speed, but what about the other features?

MacBook :: Replacing Hard Drive - Speed Compatibility

Aug 27, 2009

I own a 1st generation MacBook Core Duo (black) with 80GB Fujitsu at 1.5 Gigabit/s. I want to replace this with a compatible hard drive. Will this - Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BEVT 320GB 5400 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - work in my laptop? I notice that it has a 3.0Gb/s speed versus my current Fujitsu 1.5Gb/s. I'm using Tiger, if this matters.

PowerPC :: Dual 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 - Upgrade Compatibility?

Oct 20, 2008

I curently have 10.3.9 with a PowerPC G4 dual w/ 1.25 processors and 2 gig of ram. I want the highest upgrade I can get that will be compatibe with my software which is:

Quark 6.5
Acrobat 7.1
Acrobat Distiller 7.0
Illustrator CS1
Photoshop CS1
Microsoft Office (don't know what version but I've had it for years)

I really can't afford to go buy all the software again and I don't want my system to crash. Any suggestions?

This upgrade is mostly spawned due to the recent purchase of a new iPod Nano... Not supported by my current OS! Man, I didn't read the requirements, shame on me. However, the dang thing will work on my kid's PC w/ XP Pro. I only got the Nano cause it's mac - he wanted the Zune that ONLY works w/ PC.

PowerPC :: Getting Old G5 And Leopard Compatibility?

Oct 29, 2010

I have an old dual processor G5 power mac. A few years ago I tried to upgrade to OSX Leopard and after a month or so my system slowly started to go wrong, first problems with emails and safari, and then other miscellaneous issues and finally it completely crashed. I cleared the hard drive, reinstalled everything, and the same thing happened.

I got a local Mac service chap out to look at it and he tried a few things that didn't work and said that there were issues of compatibility with Leopard and the the old non-intel processors and recommended reinstalling Tiger. Which I did and have stuck with it since then with no problems.

PowerPC :: LaCie DVD-RW Compatibility With PowerMac G4 AGP

Jan 11, 2010

I have a PowerMac G4 AGP graphics with a 450 MHz single processor, a second internal Seagate Barracuda 120GB Hard drive and 1.2 GB of RAM.

I have my eye on the LaCie DVD-RW firewire drive designed by RA Porche. The LaCie data sheet specifies a minimum G4 500Mhz processor for compatibility. Does any one know whether my 450 Mhz processor will work? If no, can anyone recommend a DVD RW firewire external drive, or failing that, an external, firewire CD RW drive that I can add to my kit?

PowerPC :: Hard Drive Compatibility For G5 IMac

Nov 17, 2007

I'm looking to upgrade my iMac's hardrive and I found an HDD that I'd like to buy; I just want to make sure its compatible with my computer. I have a 17inch imac, and a 1.8 G5 processor (NO built in iSight). The hardrive I'm looking at is a Seagate Barracuda 500GB internal HDD. Here's a link to detailed specks: [URL]The size is right but I'm not sure the computer will accept SERIAL-ATA. It looks like the drive installed now is only ATA, so I wanted to double check and see if this makes a difference. If it does, could someone please recomend a suitable 500GB internal Hardrive.

PowerPC :: G5 Logic Board EEE Code Compatibility

Mar 27, 2008

I'm obviously new with Power Mac G5. I have two different logic boards for a Power Mac G5. The EEE code and part numbers are as follows:

Logic Board 1:
Part Num: 661-3585
Other Num: 630T6907 (I don't know what this number signifies)

Logic Board 2:
Part Num: 661-3584
Other Num: 630T6906 (Again, I don't know what this number is for)

My question is this; what configurations can I use these boards as replacements in? I'm looking at 3 PowerMacs right now but none have matching EEE codes. I listed the EEE codes and the type of machine they are below.

PowerMac 1:
EEE code: Q5M
Single 1.8GHz G5, 1GB Ram

Power Mac 2:
EEE code: ROR
Dual 2.5GHz G5, 1GB Ram

Power Mac 3:
EEE code: Q6E
Dual 2.0 GHz G5, 4GB Ram, Bought in late 2003

So, if it is impossible to use these logic boards as replacements in any of the above mentioned systems, which systems are they actually good for? I understand there may be system bus speed differences for one. But is there some sort of reference for these EEE codes such as a table or chart? Or possibly a compatibility list or description table with features for each board?

IMac :: Using 8GB DDR2 In 20in 2.66 MB324LL/A

Feb 8, 2010

My friend has a 20 inch iMac (model MB324LL/A) and he has bought 2x4GB SO-DIMMS from cosair. He has put them in and the mac wont recognise them, however it will recognise and boot up with 6GB (using 1 old chip and 1 new one) and he has tried swapping the chips about to make sure one is not faulty.

According to cruicial and Apple the max supported is 4GB but if it runs on 6GB can he get it to work on 8GB somehow?

For the Mbook Mid 2009 model (Rev. H), in the tech specifications it says it supports 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. However, I have 2 sticks of DDR-667 SDRAM lying around so I wouldn't mind using those if I can. Would the Mbook Mid 2009 work with DDR2-667 SDRAM?

PowerPC :: How Can I Speed Up The PowerMac G5 Fans?

Jan 4, 2011

My PowerMac G5 fans hardly ever speed up. I mean they certainly never go full speed or ever close how they sometimes behave on start up. I never get the jet speed noise. Even when I am rendering a movie in FCP, I hardly hear the fans. Right now on idle, iStat pro reports CPU A being 58C and CPU B being 56C. Yet, the fans are still only 400RPM both CPUS Intake/Outake.

PowerPC :: PowerMac Fan Speed Increase After 10.5.2

Feb 15, 2008

Anyone else notice a 1000rpm CPU fan speed increase on their G5 after the last round of system updates? My CPU's used to idle at ~120*f with a fan speed of 500rpm. After the 10.5.2 update they idle at ~89*f and 1500rpm. There is no perceptible noise change and I didn't even notice the change until I saw the cold CPU temperatures. I'm not worried about it, I'm just wondering if I'm alone or this is one of the system level .2 changes not massively publicized.

PowerPC :: Why G5 Drive Bay Fan Stay Always At Max Speed

Feb 22, 2008

My G5 tower is one of the early models. Today I turned it on. Immediately the drive bay fan was running at maximum speed. The Mac's temperature was cold as it had not been used for 12 hours. So the speeding fan could not have been due to the drive bay being overheated. The fan never slows down. Even after a restart it immediately spins at its maximum. Plus it stays at maximum speed all the time.

PowerPC :: G5 Fans Run Full Speed All The Time?

Sep 3, 2010

My step-son works for a company that uses a variety of computers in their test dept. and when they upgraded the test equipment they gave the old stuff to employees.My step-son is a dyed-in-the-wool PC guy who doesn't care for Macs so when he saw a G5 PPC sitting there he took it home and gave it to me.

It's a 2.0 GHz dual-processor with 8x AGP video. I checked it out and the only thing "wrong" with it is that someone has set up the fans, all of them, to run full-speed all the time.First, how did they most likely do that and, second, how can I return the fans to their normal operation. This can't be good for the computer and it's so loud and annoying that I'd rather use my G4.It's a great computer otherwise, I hope they didn't do something permanent that would require a new motherboard, that's not in my budget.

PowerPC :: RAM Upgrade - Expected Speed Boost?

Jan 7, 2008

I have a 1.33Ghz 12' Powerbook with 768mb Ram. I'd like to upgrade this. As I understand it, the max RAM for this machine is 1GB. I'm just wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to how much of a speed boost I could expect from this upgrade? is it worth doing? Will it make a difference? Spoke to Apple technician this morning, and I think he said he would take out the 512mb RAM chip and install a 1Gb one - but wouldn't this give me 1.25GB, approximately? I didn't think this machine could take that. He left me a little confused. Have just found out that I can actually max my machine out to 1.25GB for a fairly cheap price. Seems worth doing then, yes? Anybody made a jump from 768 - 1.25 before? Did it make a big difference?
