Is a RAM port not showing up a sign of the motherboard starting to die?
One of my RAM Ports is not showing up
- 1Check your motherboard manual online for possible memory configurations.
- 2Memory sticks.It is most likely that you must use the same supported memory in some of the slots.
- 3RAM mode.In addition, check what mode support is on your motherboard: there are a single-, dual-, triple-, and quadro-channel modes that add more to the limitation. That means that you have to place 1, 2, 3, or 4 sticks of memory in specific memory slots in order for them to be detected. This information can be found in your motherboard manual.
- 4Size and timing.On top of that, all of the memory sticks must have the same timing and size (timing: 7-8-7-24, size: 8 GB, for example).
- 5Firmware.Do not forget to update your motherboard firmware when there is an update available.
If doing both tricks is not helping you, then the slot might be defective; and the motherboard will need replacing or fixing in the nearest service center.
