    computer shuts down after installing RAM
    I have a 2.0ghz macbook pro that came with 1g of memory. I read on the apple website it can handle up to 2g so I installed 2g's of corsair 667mhz ddr2 sdram. My computer started up fine the first time but now randomly shuts off. It has nothing to do with heat its completely random the computer is plugged in and everything. Someone please help!!

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    power it off, reseat the ram. if it happens again, toss the old ram in and see if it goes away. if it does, the new ram has issues.
