I once had an intractable problem with a Mac. Apple changed the motherboard for me twice at no charge and the problem would not go away, the Mac would die at odd times. Then one day an error message came up saying there was a problem with the memory stick I had added. I replaced it (again at no cost) and the problem was solved.

What was interesting is that Apple's sophisticated testing equipment did not detect the problem, not in a shop in Caracas nor in a shop in NYC.

At another time I had a problem with BBEdit that because very sluggish. I discovered that a folder containing BBEdit files lived in a section of damaged memory. I moved the folder elsewhere, problem solved.

Have you tested the memory? Sometimes the test software does not pick it up, or so it seems.

Maybe these memories of old help.
