    Okay, dumb question, but are you orienting it the right way? Try flipping it and see if you do any better. Also, look at the contacts on the end to see if anything is stuck in there. Try blowing into the slot on the computer, perhaps there's something in there.

    yeah, i.m putting it in the correct way [i did try the other way just in case but it went even less far]...i.m just not sure what to do...and i don.t have a screwdriver small enough to put in the extra memory i ordered...ahh...oh well...i.ll get her all upgraded someday

    Yeah, ditto on the screwdriver. I had to run out to a hardware store to get one to open the RAM door.

    I don't know what else to suggest for the airport card. Could there be a defect? Maybe you should call up Apple.
