Hi,

 

I'm getting a kernel panic every boot, this started after i upgraded my ram with corsair cmsa8gx3m2a1066c7.

The macbook is a March 2009 model, MacBookPro6,2

 

What should I do?

 

Thanks in advance.

    If you've recently upgraded the memory, reinstall the original memory and see whether there's any improvement. Be careful not to touch the gold contacts on the memory modules when handling them. If necessary, clean them with a mild solvent such as rubbing alcohol.

     

    The Apple Hardware Test, though generally unreliable, will sometimes detect memory faults. A negative test can't be depended on.

    If the new RAM doesn't work, you'll have to return it.

    If you have no panics with the original RAM, it's almost certain that the third-party RAM is at fault. I suggest you make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested. There's nothing more I can tell you. Good luck.
