View Full Version : mid-2010 mac mini ram upgrade

Hi, I have a mid-2010 mac mini 2,4 Ghz Intel core 2 duo. I replaced memory chips with 2 x 4GB. When i click on "about this Mac" it indicates i have 4 Go of memory. Should it be 8 ? Is it possible that 1 ram chip is not correctly inserted ? Thanks

Welcome to our forums.

Mactracker says that your mini can accept:

Maximum Memory 16 GB (Actual) 8 GB (Apple)
Memory Slots 2 - 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM

First, make sure you have used the correct memory modules, and second, remove the modules and re-insert them to make sure they're seated correctly.

Macs are very fussy about using the correct low density modules, and not cheaper high density PC memory. Suggest OWC or Crucial.

One of the module was not seated properly...exact. Thank you very much !
