"broken glass" sound

By bunatetu ·
when i tried to install a 128mb pc-100 k-byte memory in a macintosh G3 desk top computer, i heard a "broken glass" sound and the unit did not boot to desk top, is it a compatibilty issue or the ram is defective. is the ram propriety? can the computer supports two hard drives?
Thanks

That sound indicates that the wrong memory chip is being inserted, or else it is not properly mounted. You have to have memory down to the specifications that a Mac will accept, not just any chip. Yes, depending on which G3 model you have, it can support two HD's, provided you have a place to connect it inside, power, empty bay etc.

Broken Glass sound - bad or incorrect ram chip.

Second hard drive - Master/Slave;
Original Power Macintosh G3 Minitower and Desktop computers with a revision 2 or later logic board support this feature. You can use the Apple System Profiler application to determine which revision of the logic board is installed in your computer. If the logic board has the ATI RAGE PRO chip, the computer has a revision 2 or later logic board.

It is a bad or wrong type of SIMM chip. Just like they said in the previous posts. and yes it can support two hard drives.

Did you try booting to the System CD? Insert CD as soon as you can open the drive, and hold down the "C" key while booting, you may need to restart.JAKE
