Hey
I have a Macbook from 2007, and currently i have 2gb memory installed in it. In the specification it only allows 2 gb memory.... my question is, if it is possible to put more than 2 gb memory in it, and if so, does it create any problems?
QUOTE Thanks

My guess is that since the system only allows 2GB of memory, it would just ignore whatever extra RAM you added in addition to the 2GBs and wouldn't function any differently.
But that's just a guess...

If it's a Jan thru Oct MacBook, you can put either 3 or 4 GB in the machine. It will only be able to use 3 GB. Putting 4 GB supposedly allows it to maintain it's dual channel capability.

The Nov-Dec MacBook , you can put up to 6GB.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
