    Well I pulled all the sticks in the upper bank as you suggested. I saw these tiny little markings on the circuit board. They were on the right side of the slots directly above the locking mechanism. So I got my magnifier & low and behold there were those markings! So here they are: The upper bank: 4 is J44, 3 is J42, 2 is J14, 1 is J12. The lower bank: 1 is J11, 2 is J13, 3 is J41, & 4 is J43. I hope this layout will help anyone else that has this problem. I rebooted from the Apple Hardware Test disc & it passed!! Thank you again!!

    OK, it will probably be awhile before I get back to you. I'll have to follow your advice after I get home from work. But I'll be back.

    I don't have an 8 slot G5 here, so I am going to make some guesses. Dimm0 is the topmost slot (marked 4, highest slot on the logic board), OR (guess 2): Dimm0 is the top center slot (marked 1 on the upper bank) That makes Dimm3 as either slot 1, or the second guess, is slot 4 (still in the upper bank of 4) So, how to proceed? Here's what I would do: Do NOT move any RAM sticks, except for upper bank slot 1 & 4. Before you swap any sticks, reseat ALL the sticks, but be sure to place each stick back in the same slots. AND - test your system. I would look at each stick, to make sure that...

    Thanks!!! I'll give that a try. I looked for the slot numbers on the circuit board. They are marked 4,3,2,1 then 1,2,3,4. Since the System Profiler's list was: DIMM0/J11, DIMM1/J12, DIMM2/J13, DIMM3/J14, DIMM4/J41, DIMM5/J42, DIMM6/J43, DIMM7/J44. Can I assume that if DIMM0/J11 is #1 on the first section of slots on the circuit board, then DIMM3/J14 should be the slot marked #2 in the second section of slots on the circuit board?

    post/0/2048/Dimm3/14 error simply means that Dimm3 in slot J14 is not passing the power on self test (POST) First step when memory is not recognized properly, is to try reseating all of your memory sticks. If you haven't done that recently, it's a good plan - and may fix your issue. I would remove all the memory sticks, then -firmly- reinsert back in the same slots. The only exception is for Dimm3 in slot J14. Swap that one with another that is currently not reporting a problem. I might choose to swap that with Dimm1. Run your AHT again after reseating all the memory sticks. If Dimm1...

    My G5ppc. has 8 gigs of ram. But after checking "About this Mac", it shows that I now have only 7 gigs. So I checked with the System Profiler and it shows that Dimm2/13 & Dimm3/J14 are at 512MB each instead of 1GB. Then I ran the Apple Hardware Test disc & it reported " Error detected at startup" and it showed " Error code: post/0/2048/Dimm3/14". What does that code mean and how do I fix it?

    Also, if you move your mouse to the top right edge of your screen, you should see that blue "back to non-fullscreen" widget. Afterwards, it should be as you knew it, more or less. (In Yosemite, it'll be different, though.)

    Try the keys: Control, Command, M (held down at the same time). To get out of full screen: ^, command, f (The carrot is Shift and 6)
