Mac OS X (10.4.5) and missing memory?

I’ll have to wait for my daily MacFixIt digest, but it seems that I had a DIMM go bad or 10.4.5 is marking a DIMM bad, and bad==empty in some low level OS response mechanism.

No other way to put it than the Lower Slot on my PB G4 AlBook is reported as “Empty.”

Folks, it ain’t empty.

Update:

If you have been following this thread, I'm updating in the comments.

It’s back to the Apple Store today to ask the simple question: “Did you hook up the power supply?”

BTW, I have noticed in the recent visits a lot of Intel boxes on the Genius Bar, as in Dell and HP towers, assumingly in for repairs. Are there a lot of consumers trying Mac OS X on non-Apple Intel? I think not... but who brings their otherwise Wintel box to an Apple Store Genius Bar for repairs?
