    I have a 13-inch, Early 2011 MacBook Pro. Recently I installed an SSD and 16 GB RAM purchased from Crucial. Ever since, I've been having problems.

    One of the things I noticed is that when my computer crashes, the wifi drop-down menu changes from it's usual look (with the wifi on/off at the top, the list of networks in the middle, and "Join other network..." etc. at the bottom) to something that has "kAirPortTurnOffKey" at the top and "kAirPortOtherKey," "kAirPortCreateNetworkKey," and "kAirPortOpenNetworkPreferences" at the bottom. What the heck is going on?

    I am continuing to have this problem 6 months later. I think it's related to the machine becoming too hot. The fan goes on full blast and the screen goes haywire. The "kAirPortCreateNetworkKey" shows up in the WiFi menu. Moral of the story: DO NOT BUY 16GB OF RAM TO UPGRADE YOUR OLD MAC EVEN IF YOUR PROVIDER TELLS YOU IT'S COMPATIBLE. It's not. You will only have problems. Buy 8 instead.
