After the RAM upgrade come the Boot Problems
I upgraded to 8gb Crucial RAM (1333mhz ddr3 sodimm), and when I startup the computer, I get the chime and grey screen with the spinning wheel into PERPETUITY. I have been able to boot in safe mode, and it indicated that my system had been upgraded to 8gb of ram. However, the software and hardware problems while running in safe mode were bizarre:
1) After a shut down I was prompted to login to my user account, but the password wasn't recognized. My system is set to login automatically...
- Got into the OS in safe mode, regular disk, and I was able to log in as an admin with my password in preferences, but when I tried to change the user account password I received an error. When I tried an incorrect original password, it came back saying that I had used the wrong password. Weird.
2) I could connect to wifi, but internet only worked in Chrome. Firefox and Spotify did not recognize an internet connection on multiple wireless networks.
Is this a good question?
