    Hi All,

    Recently purchased new RAM for Macbook Pro Late 2010 Model (Still running Snow Leopard) , and now has 8GB on two 4GB Slots.

    I was prompted to do a memory test to ensure they worked correctly, and the results are below. Test was not carried out in Single User mode and was done with no other apps running in terminal.

    It has been mentioned doing the test in single user mode.

    This is where the limit of my computer knowledge ends, so whilst I can see in black and white its stating there is a failure - should I be looking for a refund?

    Anyone who is able to explain my failure would be great, as I am always looking to further expand my knowledge.

    Try reseating the RAM before running the test again. If that fails put the old RAM in again and check that it passes too (it could be something wrong with the memory test) if these check out I'd contact the supplier and get them to RMA the RAM (send it back, send you a replacement etc.).
