joachimhb Posted March 22, 2005 Share Posted March 22, 2005 I received the memory module (Corsair CMSS1GB-333SOD) I ordered today and installed it in my system (Apple PowerBook G4 1.25GHz). I took out one of the 256MB chips in my machine and installed the 1024MB chip in the top bay. When I restarted everything seemed to work as it was supposed to, but after a while (after I had started a few applications) the applications started crashing, with my terminal applications stating a bus error (memory error) - this was with JBoss. To verify I took out the other 256MB chip as well and ran the computer with only the 1GB chip installed. This led to the machine crashing on startup 3 times (just as the system were booted). The 4th time I was able to run memtest on the avaliable RAM, which caused the system to crash (kernel panic) after reaching Stack Address sequene 5, stating: Currupt stack and Memory Acces Exception (1,0,0), upon I had to shut down my computer. I shut the computer down and re-installed my original 2 memory modules. booted the computer and ran memtest without trouble. --- I sent this email to the shop I bought it from, and received the following reply: We've not received any significant comments from Apple users regarding this RAM - you may have to configure something in the BIOS, however, if the size is significantly different from the originally installed module. Check with Apple to see if there is anything you need to do to deal with such a large module, and you may also want to ask the RAM guy at the corsair forums, as they usually respond very quickly, and are more likely to know if there is something you need to do with your config. http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?forumid=128 --- could this be due to faulty RAM ?
