Hi I currently have an Intel core duo mac 17" and am wondering what is the maximum amount of ram I can put in it.
I've tried putting in a 2gb stick along with my 1gb that is already in it but the mac does not boot up unless I take one of the sticks out.
QUOTE Thanks

2GB is the max:



I'd bet you have a bad 2nd module there.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Thanks for the reply.
Got it working now. I've just taken out the other 1 GB stick and it now recognizes the 2GB.
I'm going to put the 1GB stick into my macbook and take that up to 1.5GB.
Thanks
ps. I'm pretty sure that my macbook can take up to 4GB

Depends which MacBook you have. Core Duo MacBooks support 2GB, Core 2 Duo MacBooks with 64MB vRAM support 3GB, and the latest MacBooks with 144MB vRAM support 4GB.
