I can forgive the toes but not the fingers!!!! Bad, bad "doggy"
for holding that RAM stick by the electrical contacts!!!! That is a HUGE no-no!
Outside of smashing it with a hammer, that is by far, the easiest way to destroy your RAM though ESD (electro-static discharge) from your body. Understand you can scorch a Grand Canyon size (microscopically speaking) trench through 1000s (millions!) of transistor gates in a memory module with a static discharge so tiny, you (as a human) may not even be aware a discharge even occurred. That is, the "arc" (spark, lightning bolt!) can be so tiny, you cannot hear it, see it, or feel it; yet it is easily large enough to destroy ESD sensitive devices such as memory modules, processors and other high-density digital devices.
Always, as in EVERY SINGLE TIME, pickup and hold RAM by the side edges. NEVER EVER by the electrical contacts. And you should always discharge yourself first by touching a large metal object like the bare metal of the computer case interior before reaching in or grabbing the ESD sensitive device.
If that RAM was not bad before, there is a good chance it is now!
Even if you did not zap it, you should never touch electrical contacts with your bare fingers because skin oils promote corrosion and attract and hang on to dust like fly paper - something to keep in mind when changing CMOS batteries (or any battery) too.
As Corday notes, unless you can find more information on the stick, you may have to call Toshiba (they own OCZ now).
Can we assume this PC you were given does not work? If it does, it should be easy to find out what it is with a HW info program like Speccy
. Or ask the guy who gave it to you.
