Windows 7: Need help with RAM memory

Need help with RAM memory

Hello, several months ago I had a BSOD problem that I later found it was caused by a faulty ram stick, so I removed the stick and my PC has been normal ever since. But here's the problem, I'm running with 2GB of RAM, and my PC is getting slow because of it.
I've attached a print of CPUZ on the ram part. My question is, can I use this RAM normally ?

KaBuM! - Mem?ria Kingston 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 CL9 KVR13N9S6/2

Welcome!

It looks like it is running normally to me.

What do you think is the problem?

If you are referring to the DRAM frequency, remember that the RAM is double clocked so it is really is running at 2 x 665.1 MHZ.

Yeah the RAM looks fine, the problem may be that you only have 2GB of it now. That's quite low for a Windows 7 system.

So you removed one bad RAM stick. Why don't you buy another 2 GB of RAM to replace what you removed? Just be sure to get the same manufacture, type, part number (if you can) RAM so you don't end up with compatibility problems.

If your not sure exactly what (brand,part number) you have installed, its best to remove a stick and write down all the numbers so you try to buy the same thing.

Better still just buy a brand new kit and replace the lot.

That's a good idea too. RAM is pretty cheap.

Yeah it's pretty low for Windows 7, programs like Word, Excel and some games like cs go are freezing a lot. I'm going to buy RAM today, thanks everyone!
