    Macbook not accepting any RAM I use in the 2nd slot....using 2GB DDR2 667, have tried 5 different chips of varying sizes. New RAM works in slot 1, but not slot 2. Any ideas?

    You are saying new RAM. What about the old RAM? Which computer are you using?

    Sounds like the slot is bad unless you aren't seating it properly.

    Which MacBook does your problem apply to? Some of the earlier macbooks have two slots, but are limited to 2 GB total ram.

    The max is 2GB that's why it doesn't work.

    My MacBook1,1 also has a dead RAM slot - such is life. I just got a single 2GB stick and popped it in the good slot; good to go!

    It's from 7 years ago. It was a lot back in the day.
