1st A memory stick (Modules) can have many chips on it; depending on the size of the memory and style. Each little chip holds bits of data they can get corrupted (referred to as Bad) a row of chips is called a bank.

Memory ( Ram) is divided into pages and banks, and it is actually faster to access locations that are in the same page and bank as the last one. So if one bank goes bad the computer cannot find what it is looking for (simplistic answer)

Windows Media Player 12 is included in Windows 7 and 8. To properly uninstall it:

You need to log in to your PC using an account that has administrative privileges. Once you log in, click on Start>Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features.

This will open the Uninstall or Change a Feature window. To the far left of the window, click on the link titled Turn Windows Features On or Off.

You should now be looking at the Turn Windows Features On or Off window. This is the window where you can install, uninstall, turn on, and turn off many of Windows 7ís applications and features.

Locate a folder in the window labeled Media Features and click the Plus symbol next to it. Listed here are the media features installed on your PC.

Look for an entry labeled Windows Media Player and uncheck the box next to it. Click the OK button and follow the directions to uninstall the player.

If you decide you want to use Windows Media Player again, log in to Windows 7 using an account with administrative privileges. Go to the Turn Windows Features On or Off window and recheck the box next to Windows Media Player under the Media Features folder. Follow the onscreen instructions and you will be able to use the application again.

Windows Media Player needs WMP Codec pack to run.

Now having said this, most folks, me included will use VLC as a media player instead of Windows.

You will find it does a better job. And I would suggest this.

OK! you left one stick in and added the new memory. How much memory do you have installed? How much "OLD" and How Much "NEW"?
