I'm fairly new to screwing around with my Blue and White G3. I've upgraded to a G4 Encore/Zif 800 processor from OWC and ordered thier 256 sdram (4). This is to do editing with iMovie with a newly installed DVD burner. However, when I installed it it would run fine for awhile, then my computer would crash ordering me to shut it down. Often this will happen while the computer is idle. Then, sometimes it would not reboot properly and I'd get the apple on my screen with lines running through it horizontally.
I then noticed on their (OWC) website that this particular (cheaper) sdram may not work on all G3's because of a certain memory controller issue and that a more expensive sdram would be required. So I returned my four and upgraded to two of these 256 sdram.
I recieved them today and am experiencing the same problem after installing two strips on their own. When I use the original (192) my computer does not crash, ever.
I have reset the NVRAM, Zapped the PRAM and reset the Cuda per OWC instructions.
Any suggestions? Am I stuck with using the original memory?
