RAM not recognized anymore?
I upgraded my wifes Late 2009 Macbook from 2GB to 8GB (PNY brand) about 4 months ago.
It worked immediately and recognized all 8GB even though it is only supposed to support a max of 4GB.
It has been working perfectly, across restarts and reboots no problems until now.
She dropped the laptop and it landed upside down flat on the floor screen side down.
All it does now when you try and power it up is BEEP ONCE.
This is the NO RAM code.
I put one of the 1GB sticks that came out of it back in it.
It boots up and works fine, slow as christmas and swaps constantly but it boots up and works.
I tried reseting the PRAM and the SMC, but it still won't recognized either of the 4GB sticks in either slot. I tried both together and each separately.
Any ideas on how I can get this Macbook to work with this RAM again?
Is this a good question?
