1st dead ram slot

Okay so a long time ago i had a clean-up on pc(Bcz of freezing,lag e.t.c). pc was lagging hard bzc of cooler so i decided to remove all of these parts of computer and cleaned up. When i done with these clean up i put pc part in right place so something happend my 1st ram slot was not working (BTW it was working fine untill that). Definitly checked both ram slot (2x2gb ram each side). and 1st ram slot was dead AF. tried everything changing ram (But both ram was quite well working), cleaning slots or even what i could.

Hi @meliodas ,

What is the make and model number of the device in question?

Presumably you cleaned the RAM slots with the power disconnected from the device?

Did you clean the RAM slots? If so was it with an electronic contact cleaner spray? (although RAM slot usually don't need cleaning if the module is working OK)

Have you checked the slot, using a strong light and a magnifying glass, to ensure that you haven't damaged any of the connectors? (Do this with the power disconnected).

Check around the RAM slot in question that you haven't accidentally removed any components from the systemboard due to “cleaning”.

If you can't see anything obvious then perhaps you may have damaged a component somehow:

either electrically if the power wasn't removed during cleaning. If it is a laptop then there is power still on the systemboard as long as the battery is installed. It doesn’t have to be switched on for this,

or mechanically by the cleaning action.

Hi @meliodas

Depending on the age of the "device" (you haven't mentioned what is is) getting a replacement motherboard may be cheaper than paying to get it fixed.


Hi, My device is PKL5-AM And it is like 4 year already maybe it is time to change it


Gtx 550 ti Quad core processor with 2 gb (Bcz of it i have now 2 gb, i had 4 gb)

Lga 775


Hi @meliodas ,

Have found a few replacement motherboards online (search for 'PKL5-AM motherboard part' to get results but the prices vary due to shipping costs) so you may wish to check this out

Considering that the board was released about 9 years ago you may be better off contemplating an upgrade to a newer PC with more RAM as 4GB is the max that it can handle and that is starting to get on the low side.


Okay soo i should chamge old pc right ? is it good idea if i sell old components and by new ones or should sell pc itself with all of its components ?
