    my ibook has 2x 256mb ram sticks, i want to upgrade to 1gig, should i buy a 1 gig stick and replace one? or two 512 and replace both?

    also, i bought an LG LCD display but cant figure out how to hook it up to my ibook, there is no hole that the plug fits ( i tried them all )

    your ibook should've came w/ an adapter that you can plug your VGA into

    if it did it's long gone, my car burned this weekend and most of my stuff was in it.

    so i need a VGA adapter? i'll just order one from apple, they would have it right?

    so you feel that you can type to the message board but you can't type in a search in google.

    No sir you are just being lazy.

    buy 1 stick of 1gig rather than 2x512.

    my girlfriend and i were in the car too.. we got knocked out but a fire fighter rescued us ( we are catholic we honestly believe he was a gaurdian angel )

    he was off duty and saw the car and us.. and on top of that a DOCTOR also saw and stayed with us until the fire department came
