I have Msi Fm2-a55-e33 board and only one ram slot works. The ram i am using is Corsair Vengeance 2 x 2gb sticks. Both work i've tried them on another system. Please Help!

Sounds like a bad slot, do both work in the other slot? Have you checked CPU for bent/broken pins - that can throw the slot off

I'd check the CPU next for bent/broken pins

Broken, not much you can do, if only bent, can generally take a pair of razor blades and straight them by placing one on either side and squeeze them together then doing same at a 90 degree angle

Ok just looked at CPU no bent pins. So it has to be the motherboard. Is there any way i can fix the problem By Updating the bios?
