    Default bad memory?

    Has anyone had any problems with memory like having your monitor go blank after playing games for like 20 minutes? Ive been trying to figure out whats wrong with my computer for a long time so i tried taking out some ram and after doing so my computer seemed to be fixed... Could it be from overheating?

    Yes, heat could be a cause given the symptom you listed.

    finalllly!

    alright after about a month and way too much wasted money the culprit has been found and it was overheating memory. Thank you for giving me greater reason to pursue that theory darth. I just hooked up a fan to blow on the ram and things seem to be great.
