    So, I have just upgraded my RAM to 2GB x2 (4GB) [genuine kingston] in my 2.4 unibody MacBook, before couple days..

    It worked well in the first few hours, but now, applications crash for no reason at all and it won't wake up after sleep, if i turn it off then on, I get a crash report massage for the OS, here is one that I just got :

    Is the memory seated correctly? Does the system function normally if you replace the old memory - it could simply be a faulty memory chip in which case you could get a replacement.

    The problem is still here, at high memory usage, I get horizontal flashing lines across the top of the screen and sometimes crashes, only happened after upgrading the RAM.

    I reinstalled the RAMs, tested them using Apple's tool in the installation CD and it detected no problems...any suggestions?

    I would just take it for warranty work, but i know they will just waste my time and keep the laptop until forever..

    thanks a lot for any help.

    Try Rember (or some type of memory test).

    You may have to get replacement memory chips -- and if you decide to, I'd suggest some vendor that caters primarily to the Mac community (nothing against Kingston).

    I bought 2x2gbs from crucial recently when i installed them the system crashed after 2 minutes, after some testing i did turns out that one of the dimms was defective, i sent it back and the next day they sent me new ones and they are working perfectly.

    the memory is bad, ship it back get new, reinstall. I buy RAM from OWC, made specifically for a Mac, never had a problem. Is the computer OK with the OLD RAM?

    Update: just for reference,

    I got the RAMs replaced and everything is running great since then :cool:

    Hey, thread starter!

    Which bus of RAM did you upgrade for your Macbook (Mac-F42D89C8)

    I am going to upgrade it to 4GHz as well,

    But I wonder which maximum of RAM BUS that I can install - bus 800 or just bus 533.
