I have a start up problem since I updated to 9.1

When I press once on the start button on the computer, the computer starts but nothing happens. I need to press the reset button and then it starts to work.

I have a G4 400. This problem did happen before but it was really unusual. However, since I updated to 9.1, it is all the times.

Does any one have this problem or know how to fix it?

Um, if you problem is the same one that I have, you need to see if you have two different speed memory modules.

In my case, I had a 64MB 3-2-2 module and a 128MB 2-2-2 module. I pulled the 64MB module and my 450MHz DP G4 works like new.

(I didn't figure out this solution, I read about it somwhere in these forums...)
