With this model of macbook the ram needs some force to get it to go in. The ram is in properly when the notch on the ram is lined up properly. If you have the macbook on its back with the battery door closest to yourself then the notch in the ram should be to the left with the gold pins facing away from you. Then just push really hard on the chips. After this is done try to boot the computer up and click the apple logo in the corner and select system info. It will say the about of installed ram at the bottom. If this matches the amount of ram that you installed then you're done.

Hope this helps.
