One RAM slot dead?
I tried to upgrade the memory of my 2010 mini.
Took the 2 x 1GB out, 2 x 4GB in, restart and just one beep.
Took all out, cross checked, tested a lot of times with various DIMMs.
Finally and that's it: Only the DIMM in the upper slot works. No matter which.
One DIMM in the lower slot - beep. Two DIMMs - beep. One in the upper - chime and start... No matter which DIMM.
I did smc and pvram resets.
I don`t see any faulty contact inside of the slot, there´s no dust or anything else.
I'm worried that I killed somehow the lower slot, but how? And what to do now?
Any tip welcome!
Is this a good question?
