    I've recently attempted to install 2 sticks of 2GB RAM into my MacBook Pro, but unfortunately had jammed one stick in the lower RAM compartment (Apparently I forgot to enter it at 45°) and had a rough time getting it out.

    The RAM stick is busted and had to replace it, but I'm quite sure the slot might suffered a bit.

    Go into your apple's settings ("about this mac") and see if the memory section lists both RAM cards. If so, the connector should be working. After that, you can search online for RAM test software and do a RAM test...that's all I got, hope it helps.
