That's up to you, just remember to test the machine without each one.

So 1st I took out new ones, it was working better, then took out old ones and put new ones and it shows steady 60fps all along the line. Maybe the slot for ram is damaged?

But this did not happened before trojan infection. Could it damage the slot? I know how stupid this sounds.

Cześć :)
 
Never heard about trojan destroying physical RAM slots... Rather consider it impossible.
 
We'll perform a memory test.
 
Go to Control panel and in the search box type memory
Select the related option and it will ask whether to it now or on next boot
Select now and it will reboot and then conduct the check.
 
Cheers,
Naat :)

Hi Naat!

Due to that I have Windows 8.1 in Polish I could not locate what you have asked for. In control panel after searching it for "memory" (same results for "pamięć") I only got :

System
      How to change virtual memory
      Show RAM on this computer
      Show system resources in Manager tray

Administrative tools
      Diagnose issue with memory on this computer

I have done the last one, with 0 results. Saying everything is fine.
Could you be more specific what am I looking for?

Regards,
RP

Cześć Rafał,
 
We'll perform a memtest outside of the System.

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip).
2. Unzip downloaded /memtest86+-4.20.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find /memtest86+-4.20.iso file. Burn it onto a CD/DVD.


Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.


The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The most important item there is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

I can't do it today due to lack of CD/Dvd. I will buy one and do it tomorrow overnight, should I put all Ram in for that or just leave the one that are in right now?
