RAM slot problem

  1. So I realized my computer had randomly stopped recognizing the RAM in one of my chip slots. I tried replacing the RAM, but no luck, so I'm assuming it's the slot, not the RAM. Is this a motherboard problem that can't be fixed or is it something else that could be fixed without too much trouble, and if so, how? Thanks.

    If it's true your mobo's memory slot is bad, there's nothing u can do. If it's covered by warranty, claim it. If it isn't, well, if u really need bigger memory, u have to buy a new mobo.

    If memory module worked fine for a while, then you replace memory module with one of same type, then your problem is on the motherboard...

    before you throw away your mo/bo, update firmware...I don't recommend you to repair your mobo, beacause now you got a non working memory slot, later could be your processor socket and cpu too!! be carefull..
