    After reading this Forum for sometime and finding out that it is possible to upgrade the Late 2008 unibody macbook to 8gb of ram, I decided to buy some ram and try it out for myself. I ended up buying this ram ( After reading the good reviews and hearing it worked on many late 2008 unibody Macbooks.
    The install of the ram went prefectly fine i followed the instructions that apple provided. Then when I got everything put back together i started my macbook back up and it wouldn't boot, all i got was a white/grey screen with the apple logo on it. After a few attemps to boot I decided that i would put my old ram in and see if it was just bad ram i got. Now my macbook won't even boot with my old ram.
    Now i have ran out of ideas on how to fix my macbook. Can you guys please help?

    I have tried booting my Macbook up using SMC reset and PRAM reset with no luck. I do now have a Snow Leopard boot disk whick i will try out now. My big fear is that even thou i discharged the static electricity, that i may of still zapped something and fried the ram and maybe even other components.

    Also would it be worth my while to go get 2X2gb sticks and try those?
