You can run the Hardware Diagnostic CD that came with the system, or if you got AppleCare, run diagnostics to see if it is indeed a RAM problem. Removing one at a time can tell you if one is bad, but it doesn't tell you if the motherboard is bad as well. If you remove 1 of the RAM chips, you will loose half the RAM capacity, so your speed will slow down dramatically. It should still work, unless you had the minimum RAM. If you still have 512 MB or more, it will work, just a lot slower than before.
You can use other RAM brands like Kingston or Crucial. Just be sure that you get compatible RAM when buying new. It must match the other RAM (except for size).

Sounds to me like a fuse on the motherboard for the screen has blown or the LVDS cable is loose. You need someone near you with MacBook repair experience, as a technician I will not advise you to disassemble the unit.

This is normal, if it just pauses for a moment. If this is really frustrating to you, you might want to max out the RAM (ie memory) which I think is 4gb. Crucial is a good place to get memory from. They have a handy drop down menu system that will make sure you get the right memory for you computer.

Unable to boot up.


Try plugging your laptop into a monitor to see if the laptop boots up but the screen doesn't work.

If you have an image on the secondary monitor, sounds like the lcd on your laptop is defunct and should be repaired or replaced by an authorized Apple dealer or repair shop.

Either way you can take your MacBook into your nearest Apple Authorized repair shop and have them look into.

My macbook pro makes the startup noise then just stays black


There's a magnetic reed switch in there, to the right of the mousepad. It's activated by a magnet in the screen, so when you close the lid the reed switch closes its circuit and the machine goes into standby. It's common for it to fail. To get your machine to start up again you'll have to remove the problem: open up the case and find that switch. Unplug and remove it and you'll find your problem is solved, although you will of course need to put it to sleep from the Apple menu from then on - it won't do it automatically any more. You can get replacement reed switches but they're not cheap.

Hope that helps!

You should only use Windows xp for running a program that is not yet available from Apple. There shouldn't be much reason to link to the net while in Windows. Also while in Windows you are wide open to any viruses that exist. Try getting your work done without getting on the net, then go back to your Apple format. There you are 99% free of viruses. … Still need to link onto the net let me know I will ask at our Apple Computer Club on Monday
