    Default broken memory clip

    Hi new to the forum and also new to Mac's I have an A1212 Macbook Pro which has a problem with the memory slot.
    The top slot has two pins which hold the memory in place and one of these is broken. Both memory modules work but if you put one in the top slot it doesn't boot up.
    I am wondering if there is a fix for this problem or will I just have to get a 2 gig stick in the bottom slot?
    I don't want to buy a new logic board as this seems a bit extreme and expensive.
    Any info or help will be greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Howdy & welcome -

    Don't know of any fix but to replace the logic board. It might be possible to repair the RAM slot, but the risk of working on the board, plus cost and labor and down time....a 2GB stick is probably a better bet.

    Let's see what others say.
