Default Cleaning Pins

hi,

i was browsing other forums and found some1 had a problem with there ram so some1 posted

'Remove your RAM and clean off the contacts with an eraser, reinsert.
Repeat with your video card.'

Well when you get duplicate threads you should delete the content in one of the threads and write something like "duplicate thread" then a mod will close it so you just have one thread on the subject.
