    I've just received and installed a 1GB stick of Corsair Value Select RAM, to bring the total RAM in my MBP to 1.5GB.

    I've read that some people have had problems with this RAM, so I was wondering if there's a program I can use to test the RAM to make sure it's OK. I've run the Apple Hardware Test, which found no problems, but I'm not sure how thorough this is.

    Thanks in advance!

    No prob...just make sure to read the instructions with Memtest (i.e. boot in single user mode, etc) to make sure you get the best test possible. FYI, it does take a bit of time to do the test, depending on how much RAM you have.
