Thanks for (half of) the memory

I'd been wondering for the last few days why my Powerbook seems to be running much more slowly than usual, and I think I've determined the answer: it's only recognizing half of the 1024 MB of memory.

Looks like I'm not alone in having this problem.

reset the PRAM. check the apple support page for instructions for your model.

Thanks for the tip.

It looks like a known problem with the memory slot for this model, though—Apple are even repairing out-of-warranty machines—and my serial number is slap bang in the middle of the range of affected machines.
