    Hi - probably a common thread but every machine seems to be a tad different.

    I bought my machine from the UK mac store in summer 06 - the info says:

    version 10.4.11
    processor 2 ghz Intel Core Duo
    2gb 667 mhz DDR2 SDRAM

    I wanted to upgrade to 3gb as I heard this could support that much ram so I bought a 2gb module - Buffalo select 667 DDR2 SDRAM.

    I put it in one of the ram slots the right way round and the mac refused to boot - i replaced the old 1GB module and back to normal.

    Am I out of luck or is it defective RAM?

    thanks for any advice :eek:
