    Have you tested both RAM modules (individually) in the working slot #1?

  7. No way of knowing whether:

    a) One stick is bad - check both sticks in 1st slot
    b) One slot is bad - check both sticks in 2nd slot
    c) Sticks are in the correct spots - check MoBo manual

  9. No blatantly obvious bent pins that I can see.

  10. Think it could be the dimm slot its self

  11. Also check in the manual that the total amount of RAM you are trying to use is supported. If it only supports 8GB and you are using 2X8GB modules, one will be ignored. Some budget laptops only support 4GB.

  12. I found 1 bent pin under magnifying glass could that be the issue
    Reply to leekon1991
  13. A bent pin could certainly be the cause, yes.

    Do both modules work when (individually) used in slot #1?

  19. If both modules work independently, the issue could be with the DIMM slot (bent pin, or simply faulty electrically), or in the compatibility between the 2 modules themselves.

    Were your modules bought together in a matching pair? ie a "kit", 2x4GB, 2x8GB etc, sold together in retail packaging?
