Tips for a great answer:
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.
Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.
Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place.
Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard.
