Question on RAM slots. - Solved

Recommended Posts

Im not sure on how this works, and im honestly not sure to test it but im wanting to make sure all of my RAM slots work on my pc, When i got this computer from my brother he said that two of the slots may not work? and he wasnt sure why or sure at all but im just trying to question this before i buy RAM that needs all four slots etc.


and with this info it probably does not help too much so if you are willing to help please just private message me, thank you.


[I will post here once I have found out the answer]



EDIT - Solved thank you to everyone that helped! VERY VERY VERY Appreciated!
