    Probably bad RAM....exchange it if you can. That's why you should buy RAM for a reputable vendor with guaranteed RAM.

    Ebay is just no fun for Electronics.

    Sometimes its just not Compatible with the pooter...
    Check out:
    Crucial.com - MOST expensive, but guarunteed to work
    Chipmerchant.com - good, reliable, great prices - Mac Compatible
    macsales.com - good, reliable, medium prices - Mac tested
