I recently installed new crucial 16gb ram in new Mac Mini but now I am really concerned about the install. I had a little trouble getting the bottom module in and used 2 of the 4 nodes on the top of the module, as leverage to try and push it in. I eventually realized that the modules go in at an angle and there was no need to touch the nodes at all. I don't think I damaged anything but with delicate electronics you never know. Anyway I finally got the RAM installed and booted up the machine and it seemed to work fine. I opened up several programs at once (iphoto, imovie, safari, messages, mail, app store). I switched tasks back and forth and then while in safari started a discussion in the apple support communities. The cursor in text lines showed up as half a cursor. Could this be an indicator of a bad install or a damaged module? I am currently using mac mini with dell 1920x1080 24inch lcd monitor (2009). I know this is a repeat post and it is a little long but if anyone has any info on this based on what I described I'd really appreciate it.
