    so i got my 3 week old mbp 15 (which i dropped and dented) replaced today due to kernel panic/ram failure/apple store only had 1 memory stick in stock...

    my question is, what causes ram failure? i dont want it to happen again, i didnt install any 3rd party ram.
  2. Jason Beck macrumors 68000

    Google is your friend but it could be a number of things. Bad design from the get go, a power surge or some power related issue could fry it a bit. Ram just goes bad sometimes.
