It doesn't take much to mess with a ram slot.
I had a spider build a summer cabin in a ram slot and drive my system crazy.

and how much would a new motherboard cost?
Less than $100 (plus labor) for sure, but the hassles replacing a notebook motherboard can be a real pain.

Just make sure you backup all your data before taking it to a shop.
