Lately my screen turns black when playing heavy games (Valorant,Far Cry,Warzone) but runs ok when i play dota2 or lol. so i did some research and tried every fix (uninstalling VGA and GPU then installing OEM Drivers). still black screen. the i read that i can also be caused by faulty rams so i took out my rams and found some darkened spot on 1 of my rams "teeth". is my ram dying or is it natural? also, is it the cause why my screen goes black when gaming?

If you have 2 ram try removing the one with the black spots and if the black screen still occur then its not the culprit... or you can test each ram to find out what is the problem and i recommend that you also try cleaning the rams and the ram slots to help solve the problem

Additionally you can try to boot off a memtest86 disk and let it run. It will point out if you have bad ram
about this memtest86 i could use it to test if i have damaged ram or something right? since i have half harware reserved memory just wanna know if the ram is kinda broken now
