Hi there,

last week i bought 1GB of ram for my ibook G4 (old generation).
Yesterday, when i came home from work - my new-bought ram has arrived (weeeee :D).

I've put it (correctly) into my ibook but it seems that not the whole ram is dedectet (i've a total of 768 MB's now - expectet 1256MB). :(

What's going on here?
