  1. Yeah, I know, Im stupid. Not a big computer whiz. I have been having BSOD troubles and determined that my RAM was either faulty or just really dusty along with the fan. I was lookin for it and I couldnt find it in my computer. All I know is u can remove it. Someone help me out and let me know where its at and where it would be. I dont want to go guessing and screw up my computer. Gracias in advance!

    run memtest 86+ booted from a floppy or CD rom before touching anything. You question really indicates you're a newbie. Not to insult, but before opening anything in your computer, please read a general computer book. You'll save yourself from damaging anything. And ALWAYS ground yourself and ensure it is unplugged.

    RAM is on small sticks plugged into your motherboard. If the inside is dusty, get a can of compressed air at a computer store and blow it out.

    Try not to touch anything. Static can fry your system.

    Yeah I know that touching would screw it up. I just opened it to see how much dust I was dealing with. Thanx for the warning anyway.
