Macbook 5.1 late 2008 one DIMM slot seems to not be working. I have swapped the 2 DIMMS and they both work in Bank '0'/DIMM '0' but not in BANK '0'/DIMM '1'. I have used brand new 4 GB ram as well with same results. Can I change the DIMM slots/reader.

Macbook 5.1 late 2008 one DIMM slot seems to not be working.

 

I have swapped the 2 original DIMMS and they both work in Bank '0'/DIMM '0' but not in BANK '0'/DIMM '1'.

 

I have used brand new 4 GB ram as well with same results.

 

I have used air to try to blow out dust.

 

I have reset the whatshmacallit by pressing shift/option/command and start button, then booting up.

 

Can I change the DIMM slots/reader only?
