Well I just woke up not too long ago and turned on my B&W. It seemed to act a bit sluggish when it booted up. Well I took a look in the System Profiler to see if my CPU was still running at 450MHz since I OCed it. Well come to find out one of my memory modules went out. I have 4 sticks of PC133 256MB in this but it says DIMM0/J19 is 128MB. I find this to be very odd. The system is pretty cool, case 60*F and CPU 102*F. I need to locate another stick to see if it's not the logicboard going bad on me.
I'm inclined to think its the RAM. Slots to work or not at all. The most likely reason it would be reading as half its true value would be if there is a problem with the memory controller. But that would do the same for all four slots. Try it in different slots and you'll know if its the RAM or not.... (Try one of the others in that slot too, if it shows as 256MB, then again its just a bad stick.)
Friday night I was about to go to bed but decided to go for a quick walk around the block because my legs were really tight (long bike ride). I'd just turned left to come down the street behind my house when I see 3 guys half a block in front of me, one of whom smashes a side view mirror on a car. My car was parked nearby, so I start running after them to make sure they don't hit mine, and I get to where I thought my car was, but I was wrong. I doubled back to see where mine was, and sure enough they had smashed my mirror. So meanwhile, they split up, and I started running after 2 guys who went off together, calling the cops as I run. So i catch up to these guys and the cops were right there. Unfortunately, I was half a block away when it happened, so i didn't see which one it was. They both said it was the other guy, and there was nothing the cops could do. So, to sum up, I too just want to cry.

I have PC133 32x84 sticks in. I think the fourth one is a diffrent type and has quit working. I puled it and tested it in a PC I use for testing "bad" hardware and it showed up as 128MB. So I guess the stick is bad.
