  1. A stick of RAM?
  2. No, the computer has two memory boards. I am trying to find out if one of the boards needs replaced. Thanks, Sam
  3. You're talking about the two boards that are removable correct?

    Go to Start, All Programs, PC Help&Tools, Hardware Diagnostics Tools. This will test all hardware on your computer including the memory boards (RAM)

    I followed the steps that you posted and I do not have a Hardware Diagnostics Tools; however, I have PC-Doctor for Windows. I ran the PC-Doctor test for memory and it said that it passed the memory pattern test. Does this mean that both of my memory boards are okay? Thanks - Sam
  5. Yep... What issues are you having? You could always download and install CPU-Z to verify both sticks of RAM are working. It's a free tool that gives you specs on your system.
