Hello

I just received my 3GB ram for my Macbook from Crucial.com

I installed it and everything worked perfectly when I turned the computer on.

But when I use heavy application (for instance, World of Warcraft) the computer suddenly restarts itself !

Please help me, I'm in so a lot of panic right now, I worked for this computer so much and I'm afraid it's been wrecked

Here's the ram specs, says it's OK:

Yep, you found out that the populated module (2 Gb) should always go in slot zero when you mix and match.

Have fun.

Regards.
