    I just found out that my new iMac 27" has four memory slots, and only 2x2GB are filled. I have 2 x 512 MB something Hynix Korea 04? Is it compatible with my iMac? Can something happen' if I put it in?

    Highly unlikely the old sticks will work; they will probably not even fit in the slots; forcing one in can damage the machine. specs for the iMac ram can be found either on the apple site or at a site that sells ram - they will tell you what kind of ram you need. No idea how to identify exactly what your old ram is.

    You can try, but I'd recommend just buying some better RAM if you want to upgrade it. I don't know how easy the upgrade is, but you might as well do it maxed the first time.
