WHAT IS BAD/PARTIALLY BAD RAM?

this is a process of which your computer ram is partly bad but not totally bad,in this process the ram will still function but not as properly as it should work in other hand,, a bad RAM IS when ram is finally damage and has stop working, in this process the ram must be replace!

SIGN OF A PARTIALLY BAD RAM

  • Your computer randomly restarts while you are in the middle of something or freeze sporadically. It may also reboot almost immediately upon opening the desktop. This could be a sign of PARTIALLY BAD RAM.

  • Files—particularly ones you frequently access and save—seem to be inexplicably corrupted. RAM issues can lead to this problem, which can worsen over time. The file structure of your hard drive may slowly degenerate and you will no longer be able to boot your machine.




  • A blue screen with white text flashes before restarting. Blue-screen errors are annoying because you don't even have a chance to read the error message. Bad RAM is one thing that cause  them



  • There are certainly a variety of problems that could cause the issues above, but faulty RAM is an often-overlooked root cause of inexplicable issues. If you have one or a combination of the above problems you are likely facing a memory issue



FEW THINGS THAT CAUSE RAM DAMAGE


  • If you have overclocked any part of your computer incorrectly, it may cause damage in the form of excess heat.



  • Your memory module may have some fault that passed through quality control and worsened over time. This is the most likely cause behind a damaged RAM

  • Excessive heat can cause RAM and other parts to wear out over time. Individual components can overheat, or heat from one component can cause damage to adjacent parts.




  • Power surges can damage most computer components, including RAM. You should plug your computer and other expensive electronics into a surge protector. Make sure you know the difference between a surge protector and a power strip



It is also possible that the memory module is fine, but one or more memory slots on your motherboard are defective, hindering the RAM's performance. The defect may even be so bad that it damages the memory stick.

DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM

  • Your computer may produce multiple beeps or a continuous beep when you turn it on. These beeps can indicate many different problems, including being a symptom of bad RAM. Beep codes vary depending on the manufacturer of your BIOS. You can look up the beep codes for your specific computer to figure out its specific problem

  • If the symptoms started after you recently added more memory, the new module could be faulty. This seems obvious, but any time a problem begins after making a change, first check to see if the change caused the problem


they are still other diagnosing  method such as ram diagnostic software.
