Not that I know of. But remember, you get what you pay for. Crucial has a pretty good rep, so it just may be a bad ram module. It's happened to me before. (new, but bad)
Have you tried changing the ram around? Put the "good" one in the slot
you think is bad? (by itself) Then try the new in the other slot. If everything works ok until you add the new ram, I'd say you found your problem.
You could also try the Apple Hardware test
. Another link
for it, if you need the test.
You'd need to run the extended ram test though. The quick test may not catch it right away.
When all else fails, try everything!
The Rep System and you.
Life's a joke...If you're not laughing, then you didn't get it.
