I bought 2 GB memory cards to a total of 4GB to upgrade my current memory cards of 1 GB each.I installed and restarted and it showed that one memory card is in use and recognized and the other one remained empty.I re inserted to make sure it connects and ran it again and again it s empty.

An urban legend says that if a user replaces a 2GB RAM module with a 4GB RAM module in a Mid-2007 15-inch MacBook Pro, that it will result in a total of 6GB of RAM (if the other RAM slot already has a 2GB RAM module).

For an iMac 27" 3.06 GHZ (DDR3) late 2009 can I add a pair of 2x4GB RAM to the 2x2GB RAM that I already have installed (for a total of 12GB RAM)? They are matched pairs - I'm just not sure if each card has to be the same amount of RAM - in other words stick with 8GB or move up to 16GB.
My MBP was recently squished in a motorcycle accident and its hard drive and superdrive were destroyed. Is it possible to buy a new hard drive, put it in an external USB 2.0 enclosure, then install OS X on it using the discs that came with my destroyed MBP in a different Mac, then put the hard drive into the squished computer and have it use that hard drive as its startup disk? The motherboard on the squished computer is fine, I just can't install OS X on it because it has a broken superdrive.
I have a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo 20 inch iMac (early 2006). I have purchased additional memory that I want to install but when I try to remove the cross point screws holding the cover plate over the memory compartment they will not budge. I am afraid to squirt them with WD40 since I fear overspray would probably go into the memory compartment. I am also afraid to "bump" the screws by tapping the end of the screwdriver with a hamer since the shock might damage the drives. Have anyone of you had this difficulty? If so how did you solve it.
how do you remove back up data from the memory storage? my storage data states that i have over 80gb of data used for back ups and i dont know why as i use a external hard drive as a time machine .now my 250gb flash storage is nearly full..

I have MacBook Pro I recently format harddisk and install windows 7 and now i have only windows 7 on my mac book pro now I want to remove windows 7 and only install MAC OS x lion but i dont know how can I.
I removed battery without turning off my mac book pro. Now it will not boot up or remove cd. I tried restarting with eject, spacebar, command e, option, trackpad, and f12 depressed, individually each time to no avail. I installed a 2 gb. ram kit and loaded OSX Snow Leopard after removing battery.
I tried reading the manual but im a little confused. Mine came with the standard 2 x 1 gb that is installed on top and bottom card (1gb on top and 1 gb on bottom). I purchased 4 x 2gb cards and want to install it on top of the 2 x 1 gbs I currently have.
On the manual its telling me to install it in pairs but 1 is inserted on top and 1 is inserted on bottom...
I wanted to add more RAM to my PowerMac G5 1.8GHz and I found two 256MB sticks lying around my house from my dead Windows XP computer. I looked up on Apples website that I needed DDR 400 RAM for my PowerMac, and the two sticks I found are DDR 333, which according to Apple are only for the 1.6GHz PowerMac G5. Will they still work in my 1.8GHz PowerMac? If they work, I know my system memory will be at 333MHz, which is fine cause I only browse the web and type documents on this old computer now. I just wanted to put the memory to use.
Also, I have a single 512MB DDR 400 RAM Stick I found as well. From what I read, I have to install memory in pairs. Is this true? Will I be able to also utilize this 512MB Stick? (It has no matching pair)
I have a 27" iMac and recently picked up the latest model MacBook. I also picked up a 4Gb (2x2) RAM. I placed the 4Gb in the MacBook and decided to place that 2GB from the MB in my iMac to boost it to 6GB.
Here is my question, did I place the RAM in the best slots, assuming there is such a thing as best slots. I remember from the old day of PC that there was a strict order for placement else I may not get the most out of the additional RAM. It does register as 6GB when I click on 'About This Mac'. Below is a diagram and screen shot to show exactly what I did.
When trying to update FCPX to 10.1.3 a message pops up saying "Not Enough Memory Installed. Atleast 4 GB of memory required" (or something along those lines), how can I 'install' memory to update FCPX?¬†
I think I have an iMac G5 - flat screen, white covering. Right now I have OS X 10.5.8 & it's running rather slow. The processor is 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, Memory 512 MB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6.3 - tried today but says I don't have enough memory. How do I get more memory & what do I need to do it.
