Hey gang... a couple questions for our more computer-savvy members...( this isn't me... LOL, I mean, I know basic things, but not so much internal hardware stuff). I had 16 gig of RAM installed in my PC - two separate sticks of 8 - and everything has worked fine for over a year; but yesterday I got the W10 version of "the blue screen of death", and the cause cited was "memory management". I tried a bunch of different things, and then finally pulled one of the 8 gig strips out ( it was purchased separately and installed a few months after I got the PC (new). Apparently, this was the issue, because my PC then fired right up, no problems, everything stable. Of course, since I needed to prove to myself that the stick of RAM really was the problem, I put it back in, and after starting, I encountered the same problem again. So my question(s) - can RAM just "suddenly" go bad like this without warning? I didn't notice any signs or symptoms of this happening, one minute the PC worked fine and the next, I got the dreaded blue screen. I've since removed that RAM stick - and everything is running fine again - except now I'm down 8 gigs of memory. Is it possible that the RAM is actually fine but the slot on the MB went bad? I haven't tried putting it back into another open slot... Thoughts?
