I have a Mac mini (Macmini3,1). I was origionally told that, at most, it can only take 4 GB of RAM. When I bought the Mac it had 2 GB so I went to Fry's and got 2x 2 GB sticks.
Here is the info on the memory. Both are the same; I can't remember the manufacturer's name.
Size: 2 GB Type: DDR3 Speed: 1067 MHz Manufacturer: 0x8502 Part Number: 0x505344333247313036363253000000000000 Serial Number: 0x00000000
Today, I got Mactracker from the App Store. It has data on all the Macs that ever existed.
It says that the Macmini3,1 has a maximum capacity for 8 GB of RAM but Apple only supports using up to 4 GB. Before I go out and get the RAM, I'm wondering if any of you have tried putting 8 GB of RAM on a Macmini3,1.
Today I bought this RAM.
I installed the RAM as someone suggested but the Mac wouldn't even boot; what I mean is the power supply wouldn't even turn on. I just saw the white light in the front and that's it. I left it on for 5 minutes and still nothing. I took it apart checked all wires a few times and tried a few times and still wouldn't turn on. I eventually gave up and put the old RAM back in and it worked.
Is it possible that the RAM is bad and I should have it replaced? Or I should use another brand?
