    Hi!i have a macbook pro and i decided to change the ram.i opened it and i changed it with no problem...but after that i tried to power on my mac and it doesn't turn on at all....!!i changed the ram again with the original and the problem is still there..when i put the charger on my mac it flashes all the time with green light and the battery button at the left side doesn't show anything like it doesn't work.. I tried to reset the mac book pro power manager and to reset the parameter ram but nothing happens... Does anyone know what to do?

    I would open it up again and take out and reseat the RAM if you haven't tried this, sometimes we forget the obvious. Don't panic.

    Ok. Is it definitely the correct memory? Is the mac under warranty so could you take it to a genius bar/call Apple support?

    Try putting back the original memory. [Sorry re-read your post] See above suggestions

    Is it plugged into mains rather than battery?

    Try taking the battery out and running from mains.

    Have you done an SMC reset?

    Also do post on the official Apple support forums and if in warranty time use Apple telephone support.

    Sorry I've run out of ideas seems like you've tried the obvious - do post for help on the Apple forums a good source of help.

    Good luck.

    did you put disconnect the battery during the install and then remember to reconnect the battery? you can always try to turn the computer on while having it connected to the power.

    Did you follow all antistatic procedures? remove battery, anti-static wristband, demagnetized your tools?

    If not, that may have been your problem.

    The only other thing i can think of is to check if there is nothing that may have disconnected or in the way of the power button working correctly.
