    Alright I just picked up a new Macbook Pro from school today, and all my apps keep crashing, Safari, Chrome, System Preferences, you name it..... I've done a bit of search on the two codes I'm seeing and guess it might be the NuRam (8gb) I just put into it. Just wondering if there is anyway I can test the ram before I call them up??

    Just as a heads up these are the codes I'm seeing:

    Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS

    Any help would be appreciated!!

    That's what it looks like. Defective or not properly seated.

    Alright guys thanks for the heads up, I posted this before work yesterday. So when I got home OWC had sent me the RMA number along with there Ram troubleshooting guide. Well this morning I've gone thru reseting the PRAM and PMU and everything else they told me to...still crashing left and right. So I swapped out the 8gb for the stock 4gb and reset everything just for ***** and giggles and its working flawlessly again. So now I get to send off the ram and wait for that whole process....how is OWC on returns?
