Why my MBP is crashing after SSD and RAM replacement


I been having this problem I replaced the HDD of my mbp for a brand new SSD kingston Hyper X 240 gb and upgraded the RAM to 16gb, after having done this I downloaded the TRIM enabler so the ssd would be fully compatible with the MBP.

But with no apparent reason (MBP connected to an external monitor) the computer crashes and turns off completely or reboots, it is random I guess. There is no crash report or nothing the monitor displays some weird colors and pixels and shut downs completely.

I thought at first the ssd could be bad but after testing it was ok, I did a PRAM reset and nothing I reinstall OSX on the disk because I thought maybe there was something wrong with the copy of the system files but still nothing.

Someone knows how to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Can you give us the last four digits of your serial number so we can correctly identify your system.


Can I ask what Macbook Pro you have as on the question you have chosen a Macbook Air. These are 2 different computers. Now it might be an issue with the RAM, but there is no way for me to tell as I dont know what RAM you put in and what computer you have.

Check to see if your computer is compatable with the RAM you put in.

Replace the original RAM. Always do one upgrade at a time so that if you do have issues, you know where to look. Once you have the drive settled in, then test the new RAM.
