First 2 things you should try are
firstly reset CMOS, and if that doesn't work, reseat the cpu.

If that doesn't work, check the cpu socket for bent pins
If all of that is okay

It would be 1 of 2 things, a dead memory channel on the cpu, or dead memory slot. Both of which are not really fixable.
You can try putting the ram in different slots, but that wouldn't tell you if the slot is broken or the memory channel.
