I've upgraded the ram on my mini to 2gb (2x1GB modules). I've 2 1gb modules in each slot but mac os x tells me one slot is empty. I've tried all the possible combinations in order to see if a slot or a module was defective:

slot 0: 1GB
slot 1:1GB
total: 1GB

slot 0: 1GB
slot 1:
total: 1GB

slot 0:
slot 1:1GB
total: 1GB

What this tells me is that the slots are ok and both modules are ok.However Mac Os X always tells me one slot if empty and I only have a total of 1GB. Any ideas?
