Did you use PC2-5300 200 Pin DDR2 SODIMM. One problem could be that the RAM is PC rather than PC2, a very easy mistake.
Otherwise, try taking out the RAM and reinstalling it. If that doesn't work, trying installing the original RAM.

I have a macbook white 4.1. and I am trying to replace memorynya (2x512mb) with a memory only 1 slot with capacity of 2 GB. But after that, my macbook is always an error / stop the process

Unfortunately, you cannot replace just one of the memory DIMMs. You must replace both existing DIMMs with the same upgrade memory DIMM. Also, be sure that your Macbook will be able to support the 2GB DIMMs. It may not.

16GB USB Memory Stick not readable by Macbook

It's possible it was just subjected to a static shock and got scrambled. As long as the data previously on it was not important to you, you can re-initialize the unit (provided it has not been physically damaged).
In Applications/Utilities, launch Disk Utility. Plug in the USB stick. Choose the stick by name in the left side panel, and click the Partition tab. Choose 1 partition. In Options, choose GUID Partition Table. Click Apply. This should reinitialize your stick.

My macbook freezes whenver i leave it around for more than an hour

It sounds like the RAM is getting used up, you may need to add/replace it. RAM stands for Random Access Memory, it's what your computer uses to run the tasks that are being preformed at that certain time. What is happening is the RAM in your laptop gets slower and weaker as time goes on, and soon enough it can barely handle doing the simplest of tasks, replacing it should fix this problem. If you bought your mac book over 1.5 years ago doing this should be very easy, just pop out the battery and slip the memory in the slots, memory cost around 50 bucks a GB on ebay, but Apple will do it all for you for about 100 dollars a GB.

My macbook takes a long time to boot up, and at some points stays stuck on the white screen

Depending on the model of macbook vs the amount of programs you have running on it you may need to upgrade your memory. Also, it is possible one of your memory sticks has gone bad. Please try to see how much of your memory is actually available and report back to me.

Good luck

Can i place a 4g and 2g stick in my macbook pro

Hello! The MacBook Pro you have mentioned can only support 4GB's total. 2GB's in the first slot, and 2GB's on the second slot.

What you may have seen by accident was that you can purchase either a 4GB kit, or a 2GB kit. Meaning a 4GB kit with 2 2GB sticks, or a 2GB kit with 2 1GB sticks.

Your best bet is to go with a 2GB stick in each slot to max out your MacBook Pro. 2GB's is the largest each slot can read.

For more information, check out the website below which has very detailed information on memory for various systems.

MacBook USB Problem

It really depends on the age and make of the usb memory stick.
As you are on a new mac it is more than likely usb 2.

Most sticks are formatted for PC usage. Macs can read PC formatted stick but PC cannot read mac. That could slow the mounting time down.

The only thing I can suggest is, if you do not need the stick to transfer data to a PC try reformatting it with the apple disk utility. If that does not sort your problem out it is more than likely a faulty stick. They are quite cheap thees days so you could simply replace it.
