I recently took my old G5 out of mothballs - and noticing that it only had 2Gigs of RAM bought 4 replacement chips to bring it up to 4 gigs. Popped them in but Machine wouldn't boot up...  just revved with full fan speed. So swopped them out and put the old RAM chips back in... ding happy mac all seems back to normal BUT now fan speed is still stuck on full tilt. Solutions to fan problem?

    Solved problem by powering down - removed RAM chips and then relaid them in a different pattern.... perhaps I screwed up my matching pairs previously?

    Good work, could be they werent matched, or maybe just needed reseating.
