    Just change the ram and now when I run it with the battery in It locks up tried each individual stick alone no problems any ideas seemed fine when battery is out

    ----------

    How can the battery cause this the battery is well buggered but would it cause it to crash

    Is this a white non-Unibody MacBook ?

    My guess would be that the keyboard ribbon is damaged and replacing the ram has made it worse - the ribbon passes over the middle ram slot...

    And this would cause crashes because? Why should it only be on battery?

    The cable has been crushed by the swollen battery and often gets damaged when ram is replaced in the middle slot....
