    Autherised Apple repair in the UK. Where can I find?
    I've been told the RAM might had popped out on my Macbook and I need it to be fixed by an Autherised Apple person to not void the warranty, however I live nowhere near an Apple Store so where can I find the closest Autherised apple repair store?

    On a MacBook you don't void the warranty by replacing the RAM. Turn it over and take the battery out. Underneath is a little diagram. You need to take out 2

    On a MacBook you don't void the warranty by replacing the RAM. Turn it over and take the battery out. Underneath is a little diagram of what to do. You need to take out 2 or 3 little screws to get to the RAM. If it's popped out, pop it back in again.

    It would be easier for you to catch the train to London and go in to the Apple store if you dont want to do it yourself

    Book a time at the genius bar online

    Have you taken it all the way out, peered at it a bit, blown on it and then tried putting it back in? Works for me with most things.

    Does it boot with only the other stick (the one that didn't pop out) in? Might be a bad stick of RAM.
