    OK, well I tried to upgrade the RAM in a friends macbook. It's a 1.83 CD with a superdrive, had 512mb, and I tried to upgrade to 1GB, which was the stock RAM from a C2D black Macbook. This is the 3rd Macbook I've upgraded the RAM in, and I did it just as I have the others. Except on this one, when I put in the 1GB and turned it on, the disk would start and the drive would check for a disc, and the screen would flash, and the white indicator light would flash repeatedly. So I tried the shut down and restart, reset the PMU and the PRAM and got nothing. So I put the stock RAM back in, and now it does the same thing, only the indicator light stays solid, and doesn't flash or anything. Anybody got any ideas??

    Mehbe you broke something? If you messed up and broke a RAM thingy, it would def. be bad, and without RAM, the computer would be too slow to use, if at all.
