Possibly bad ram

January 8, 2013 10:32:18 PM

Hello everyone,
I am hoping someone can help me I have a toshiba labtop satellite a505-s6005. When I bought it it came with 2 2gb ram. I bought a pny 4gb ddr3 ram. It worked fine for about a month. Then my computer said it was having boot problems and couldnt boot. I took the new ram out and put the 2 old ones in and it booted up fine. I have 2 ram slots and it says I can use both of them or one of them. Is it the ram that's bad? Here are the specs on my computer and ram.
