anybody knows how to fix an issue where using ram in dimm1 slot doesnt boot the pc? it only works in dimm 2 slot, also my mobo only has 2 slots. If i have any of my 2 rams in 2nd slot it boots up fine, with 2 in, or with 1 in slot 1 it simply doesnt boot.
i will also add, the ram was working fine yesterday.
at one moment my whole pc froze, i restarted it (restart didnt work so I long press power button) and since then first slot doesnt start the pc.

Info:
windows 7 x64 ultimate.
Ram is hypexfury dd4 8gb, 2400mhz and 2133 mhz (they both worked together just fine)
mobo: Asus H110M-PLUS
cpu:intel core i5-6500
gpu: raden r9 290

Well, it sounds like the first slot is faulty and may not be repairable.

However, if luck, it may just need a good cleaning. Unplug the computer from the wall, then touch bare metal of the case interior to discharge any static in your body. Then give the slot a short squirt with some quality electrical contact cleaner. Wiping the contacts with a folded clean dollar bill makes a great contact cleaner too.
