I have a MBP 2010 13 inch model and have tried to upgrade the ram from 4gb to 8gb with 3 different brands of ram (pny, corsair, crucial). Non of these work. I have checked all the specifactions, and all are an exact match to what is compatible with my MBP. Even the Geek Squad guys were dumbfounded when all three failed. with the new ram sticks installed, the MBP will not boot up at all. Does anyone have this same problem? any solutions you may recommend? The funny thing is when I upgraded with this exact same 8gb ram into my mac mini it worked flawlessly.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
