Here’s how to resolve the common problems associated with this hardware.
- It is important to use the appropriate memory modules to make the computer work properly. Consult a computer specialist to distinguish the exact type of RAM that will fit your motherboard.
- For defective memory modules, the computer will not boot up and usually there are two to three beeps that will indicate a faulty RAM. To determine this issue, boot the PC with one installed memory at a time or use another memory slot.
- Make sure the computer is OFF > Remove all cables from the back of the PC > Unscrew and remove the side cover > Remove the RAM carefully > Use an air blower to remove dust accumulation in the slot > Insert the memory or if you only have one RAM, use another available slot > Return the cover, plug the cables back and turn the computer ON.
