Hello, I was given an old laptop from a friend whose sister trashed the casing and the cable plug. I replaced both but am finding an issue with the first sodimm slot. I have moved the RAM (Micron 8gb ddr3l 1600mhz) to the primary slot with nothing in the second slot. After the computer boots and has been running for a bit, either the mouse and keyboard don’t respond or the screen suddenly just has artifacts and stops. If there is anyone whom has any idea how to figure out what the issue is or knows this issue, help would be greatly welcome 🙂.
(The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 15 7559 with an i7-6700HQ and the fore mentioned 8gb ddr3l ram)
