Bad cache memory!?
I have a problem with my Powerbook lombard. A week ago it started to freeze on me all the time, I'm using os 9. So I tried every thing, I reinstalled os 9, I tried to install os x, but the same thing happend. total freeze in random places all the time. Then in os 9 I get the error that there's a problem with my cache memory. That's bad, if so i would need a new processor card and that is expencive.
But I know that it might be just a bad ram that can give you the same error so I pulled one of my ram chips out and it seemed to be more stable. My computer continued to freeze up but not so often and I didn't get the cache problem error. So I pulled that one and put in the first ram insted. Now I got total freezes and the cache error again. So ok that ram is most likely a bad one but my powerbook still freezes up on me, it never used to do that before, and today i got the cache memory problem error again.
Are both my ram's bad or do I have to get a new processor card??? I hope not. I don't have a ram that I know is good to test with.
Anyone that have any experience with this problem?
On another note i just moved to the US and my Powerbook is european, when I got here my powercord did not seem to work so I bought a new one, the round model. all the problems started after this.
I really hope that someone can help me out, I'd be modt greatfull.
