    My macbook pro suffers screen glitches at random times after i install new 16 gb rams. kingston.
    What Ive done:
    1. reset smc and pram
    2. clean ram slot
    3. deal with overheating(downloaded fan rider and physically improve heating problems.
    4. passed the extended hardware test.



    The problem happened one time when the machine is not even warm.
    So now most probably is the ram's problem.

    I have read a lot of posts on the internet regarding my macbook pro model with this exact same issue.. they jus dont have a solution....could anyone please help?

    Return the RAM and buy something else. The GPU in the 13" MBP uses system memory, so issues will possibly show up in this way.

    in this case what else can I buy? more exp ones? and how can I be sure which one will work? coz apparently mines compatible
    I put back the originals in. It starts up even faster. But then My point of buying 16gb is to have more memory for my work. I went back to the store and the guy changed a few rams of the same models to test out.. I guess this store is a freud. but still i hope theres an explanation to that...
