your are most likly running on an outdated OS. you can download an older version of firefox somewhere probably, but not on firefox's website.

Isaac Peterson says:

how come mine doesn't have the airport on top of the ram like yours? also, I i replaced my 512 mb chip with a 1 gig one from ebay, but the computer still says that I am running on only 512 mms of RAM, did the guy on ebay rip me off, or did i do something wrong?

TheElisabethPage says:

perfect! thanks!

Davoutay says:

The video was elegantly informative without a single word spoken.

ChrisVaughn85 says:

@macunwired Will it work if I put memory in my g4 that is from a ibook g3 "blue berry"? The memory in my g4 is 512 built in and the one i want to add is 192mb.Will it work?

Zachary King says:

So can I put 2 GB of memory or just 1 GB max????

qwert13y says:

I appreciate the irony of watching this from an iBook identical to the one shown in the vid, save for the upgrade of course, now to go find me a 1 GB chip

Iain Wright says:

Thank you…worked first time, no problem.

Tony Chea says:

@zachsgamingstuff The ibook has ram attached on to the motherboard already

BadHabit Loe says:

what kinda screw driver is needed?

Zach Schork says:

i have two questions: 1. when you take out the old memory chip and put in the new one, doesnt it lose the old memory making it 1 gb not 1.5 gb? or is the additional .5 built into the system? 2. do you have to get a specific brand or type of memory chip.
