PowerBook suddenly running very slow. WHY???

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014

My PowerBook has been working extremely slow for the past couple of days. Restarting hasn't helped. Even though it's about 5 years old, it's never given me any trouble.

Now I wanted to start FinalCutPro, and there's a popup saying:

Configuration Error

This software requires certain hardware or software which is missing.

? 512MB of RAM.

So I can't even start this program. It's really an emergency since I have to work with FCP, can someone help me?

Thank you,

    Go to your Apple menu and select About this Mac. How much memory do you have? Looks like you memory needs to be reseated or replaced (if it's gone bad).
