What is going on with this Mac?

I bought 3 used PowerBooks off eBay, 2 are for the kids which work perfect and then mine (PowerBook G4 1.5GHz 15") used to belong to a college, I bought Panther and did a fresh install on the other two mine wouldn't boot from the CD Rom so I put the harddrive in another PowerBook and installed it once back in it would boot and crash at the Apple logo, I put another harddrive back in with the same OS version it had cone with and it works again! I tried to up the RAM took a 1GB stick out of another PowerBook but it wouldn't recognize it! This is my first Mac so is there sone kind of upgrade lock tied in the BIOS/Motherboard somehow or what? I can't upgrade or downgrade the OS but the harddrive still boots in the other PowerBooks. I'm stumped
