Hello,

So around 30 minutes ago, I was just playing a game (VALORANT), when everything froze. So I hold the power button and turned my PC off, but then it won't POST. So I checked the troubleshooting led lights on my motherboard and it kept getting stuck on DRAM. Now of course I start troubleshooting my RAM sticks, trying them out separately throughout different slots. With this, it seems that the other one isn't working properly anymore, because whenever it's installed whether alone or with my other RAM, the PC just won't boot, but it still lights up. So does this mean that it just died?

This is the first time I had issues with my RAM, my PC is around 1.5 years old. The only changes that I did earlier were updating my NVIDIA driver, and just yesterday, updating my iCUE software. Is it possible that the updates killed it?
