    Hey guys,
    To start of; my English is not great, I'm Dutch..
    I just bought 2x8 GB Kingston RAM and opened my Mac mini, but when I started lifting the other (2x2 GB) karts, one of my 'holders' (which holds the karts in its place) broke and fell into my Mac Mini. I wasn't able to get it back cause it got stuck somewhere. I didn't thought it was a real big problem, but when I put the 2x8 GB in my Mac Mini and started it up, it didn't do anything except of giving a short 'Beep' every 5-10 seconds.
    I have hold (?) the power button so it turns off completely, but when I started it up again it started up with the 'beep' again..
    My father told me I had to go to send it back to Apple for repair, but is there any option I can do it myself?

    Thanks for your help!

    Oh, ok. Great..
    I don't want to send it to Apple! :(
    Do you know how many Euro's (or Dollars) it will cost me?

    Thanks for replying so fast!

    Probably a lot because they'll have to replace the logic board.
