Forget whatever you have done earlier in here and here.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

When 8 passes are over, take a camera snapshot and upload it here.

If memtest comes free from errors, enable driver verifier. Use the PC normally with Verifier on. Run it for at least 24 next hours.

If you get any further BSOD, inform us following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions only. Not like this and this post. Its very tiring to guide you through the BSOD posting instructions every single time.

And if the issue is an issue to you, take it seriously. If you get such a lag, the continuation of thought breaks.

Hope you will take my words seriously.

One single error/red line is enough to rule out the RAM as bad.

Now follow Part 3: If You Have Errors: of the tutorial RAM - Test with Memtest86+ .

Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

Let us know the result of your tests.

Should this be done again with 8 passes for each ramstick and each slot?

Each RAM stick in each slot.
passes is not necessarily to be done. If a single red line appears, stop the test.

there are 4 slots, 2 blue ones, 2 black ones.

The two ram sticks were in the 2 blue ones.

I tried testing one stick in slot #1 (a black one), my monitor wouldn't get no signal.
Now I tried one stick in slot #2 (a blue one), and my monitor works again.

So what are these black slots?
Should I test them too? I don't know how.
It didn't even sound like my computer started up normally, didn't hear the windows sound, so I think that is the reason monitor didn't get signal.

If possible, test all of them, but dont test them mixing (one black and one blue together). If mixed ( one black- one blue) it will be shifter to single channel mode.

Should I do the 3 undone tests?
Or is it clear ram stick #1 is the problem?

Very nice. It makes it clear that the RAM 1 is faulty. Not the board.

Now, either get a stick of equal size and FSB of RAM 2, or (the better option is) to get a new kit of two.
