Customer Question

I just installed a 2 GB (1GBBx2) on my MacBook (12/2008 model) when I completed the installation & turned it on, ir turned on but I only have a black screen. What do you suggest I try next? I reopened the back to make sure they were seated properly & they seem to be.

Hi My name is***** hope i can help you.

In this case, the Black Screen means the RAM is not properly installed. Take out the RAM again and reseat them. Let me know if that didn't worked. Only click Accept after we solved the problem.

I compared the model # on the RAM's and they don't match my order. I tried to
call the company this morning and apparently they are not open today. My guess is,
they sent the wrong RAM inserts. I'll let you know after I speak with them, probably

i think that so. This happens if the RAMs are different than the supported by your Mac.
