I have a Gateway SX2865 desktop computer with 2 4gb memory slots. For some reason, one of the slots doesn't work. When I plug a memory card that I know is good in the slot, the computer beeps 3 times and does not boot. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix the slot, or am I stuck buying a new motherboard for a machine that is so outdated?

Hey Lutfij, thanks I appreciate it. I've tried using canned air, but didn't want to get too aggressive with it because of the condensation issue. I've got some artists brushes, so I'll give you're suggestion a try.
