I have removed and installed ram-chips from laptops and desktops before, but this is the first time I am doing it on a server (Dell PowerEdge T110 2). The hardware manual cautions that a memory-module blank must be installed if a ram-chip is removed for proper cooling of the system. My question is - since I don't have a memmory-module blank, should I really get one or can I simply remove the ram chip?
Upon performing MemTest86, I found that one ram chip has a huge number of faults - which I believe is causing the server to crash daily. So, I am trying to remove that defective ram chip (I'll probably have to guess which of the 4 ram chips could be the defective one...)
Thanks in advance to all for trying to help me out here!
