I will get a 2gb ram sodimm 200pin pc3200. I hope it arrives in the next weeks. I will try it as soon as i have it in my 12" g4 1,5ghz powerbook and will let you know if it worked or not.
It is a risk for me, cause if it doesnt work i lost some money.
I called apple and went into shops and no one can really tell me if it will work or not.
The problem is it is a ECC ram. ECC ram is only officially supported in G5 ppc macs. The onboard ram in a g4 powerbook is non ECC.
When researching the net i read different opinions, it may work, or it may not work. Some mainboards, though officially not supporting ecc just bring it to work in not using the ecc. Others dont work at all with it, and again others can be made to work with ecc by disabling ecc in the bios.
I dont know how to get into a g4 powerbooks bios. Apple doesnt even have a bios i think. Theres sth like a bios but i dont remember how its called or how you work in it.
I am thankful for any more information regarding that matter!
