So I assume if you leave the second ram stick out the computer boots? Try the ram stick from slot 1 in slot 2 and leave slot 1 empty. Does it still beep? If not then the stick from slot 2 is bad

I've bought 2 new ram stick and put them into slot 1 and 2, however it still keep beeping. Then I removed the ram stick from slot two and my macbook back to normal. I think my lower ram slot is damaged. I have cleaned the slot as some people advised but it still doesn't work.

Try using one stick at a time in slot one if the MAC doesn't work with one then make that one as bad. If it works with both then your second ram slot might be bad. If that is the case then the only way of repairing it would be replacing the Ram Slot but being as that is probably a 2M level soldering job it would cost too much to repair it.

You could instead just only use the one slot but put the max ram that, that computer recognizes in that one ram slot. That would probably the cheapest fix. But that would be only half the max RAM that the computer could see if both slot were working.
