See what they say if you bring up the law.

That model uses a stick on thermal sensor that can be adhered to a replacement drive with no issues.

Although you could replace the 3.5″ drive with a 6TB drive using the thermal sensor cable.

I’d love to replace the factory 128GB stick with a 512 or larger SSD AND a huge 6TB spinning HD for a massive fusion drive.

Comment on “Secret” Firmware lets Late ’08 MacBooks use 8GB. by OWC Ben M http://blog.macsales.com/9102-secret-firmware-lets-late-08-macbooks-use-8gb/comment-page-8#comment-94595 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 20:04:20 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=9102#comment-94595 I’m sorry to hear about the issues. It sounds like you may have bought 1333MHz RAM instead of the proper 1066MHz RAM. If that is the case you’ll want to exchange them for the proper 1066MHz RAM.

If you do have 1066MHz modules, I recommend trying to clean the memory module. Take a clean pencil eraser and gently rub it along the metal contacts on the memory and follow that by using a microfiber towel along with rubbing alcohol to clean the metal contacts on the memory, this should insure that the memory is getting a solid contact with the computer

If that doesn’t resolve the issue, I would try both and SMC and PRAM reset.

SMC reset: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1411

And

PRAM Reset:
1) Start the machine while holding down the Option-Apple-P-R keys

2) Wait until you hear the 3rd startup chime, then let go of the keys and let the machine boot up.

Lastly if the issue is still unresolved, I recommend running an application called Rember. Rember is a free download at http://kelleycomputing.net:16080/rember/. Once you have it downloaded please run a 3 pass test. This application will let us know if any issues are present on the memory modules.

I’m sorry to say that the Graphics card cannot be upgraded on your iMac, so you’ll be stuck with what you have.

You can check which graphics card and how much VRAM it has within the System Information. To check this go to the Apple Menu -> About this Mac -> More Info -> System Report -> Graphics/Displays. It will then give you details about your graphics card and how much VRAM you have.

Adobe lists the system requirements and recommendations here.
