I believe this a ram thing thier is nothing wrong with the computer it's self,
After a while it works!

yeah very strange
its funny cause im having some freezing issues with my mac , no where as bad as that. only thing i hate about macs is therre picky nature in regards to ram.. funny also how a good reboot or kick can get them started again..

yea a kick ,lol well i'm not it currently, it works thats the main thing!

wait could it have been because of Virtual memory turned on??

I dunno I thought in osx that was all done automatically..

Can you tell us the specifics of the RAM you have installed?

20th March 2005, 03:49 PM
Well this currently running mac os 9.2.2 and it has Apple Ram 128Mb!
It's still the original, and the computer is an iMac 350 slot loading mac!

If you updated to 9.2.2, were you aware of the necessary firmware updates for G3 iMacs?
