  • RAM shows error in 3 of the 4 slots

    I tested each of my 2 sticks individually and only 1 slot shows no error while the other 3 report errors starting from test 4.

    Obviously that means if I want to run both my sticks I will get errors as well.

    Is the correct conclusion that my motherboard has 3 bad slots or is there still a possibility of my ram being bad or perhaps some bios error?

    If the stick works in some slots but not others, then it might be marginal (e.g. timings or voltages right on the edge of failure).
    Probably more of a compatibility issue than outright failure.
    Could try under-clocking or a slight voltage increase to see if it fixes it.
