    I just installed 4 gb into my Early 08 MBP. When I turn the power on, nothing happens except loud beeps. I force the power off, put the old ram back in, and it works...

    Is there anything I have to do to get the new ram to work or is it just plainly bad ram?

    Thanks (The ram is ddr2 667mhz, 2x2gb sticks)

    The RAM is either bad or incompatible. Sometimes RAM is just weird like that.
