I have had my mac for a few years now and it always had 1 GB of ram in it. I rcently let someone borrow it for a job and it was returned to me with only 512mb in it. Never got it back basically. So I decided to order two 512 mb's and make it to the full 1.5 maximum allowed. There are three slots for memory in the computer. I added the additional two 512's to the pre-exisiting one and booted up.

When I went to go check, it says I only have 1GB. I shut down and tried another arrangement. 1GB. I put only the new ram in and left the old one out, leaving the third slot empty. 1GB. So I am assuming that the third slot is not detecting anything that is put in there. My applecare ran out 3 years ago and I don't think I can afford to bring it in somewhere right now. If anyone has an idea, solution, or has encountered a problem similar to this... any help would be fantastic. Thanks
