    Hi all,

    I've just installed the 8gb memory kit that I bought from crucial, but when I go into activity monitor it says I still have 4gb RAM, is this normal or may i have put in one of the modules wrong?

    Thanks

    One is probably not fully seated.

    Open it back up and double check your work.

    Not too hard and not too soft

    I had the same problem.....it's hard to know when it's fulling installed. I was scared to press to hard, but you actually can put a little more pressure than you think. I always look to make sure the memory looks parallel to everything else.....tells me whether one side or the other is not fully seated.
