I have an alienware m15 r1 i7 8750h rtx 2060 2x8gb ram It recently started overheating so i decided to open it up and clean it a bit, nothing major just used a dry cloth to gently clean the dust , didn't even open anything/ touch the ram modules. After that, the laptop was stuck in a boot loop Showed a windows logo and then resets immediately. So i removed one of the ram sticks that came with the factory and viola laptop starts working again, I've tried switching slots with both memory modules and it looks like everytime i put the bad memory stick inside the laptop, it refuses to boot. The bios detects both the ram modules with correct memory and speed. But i cant complete dell diagnostics when the bad memory stick is in the laptop(gets stuck at testing memory). Please I need help with this
