So do you have a question here? You have already identified your problem. Either the RAM stick is bad or the RAM slot is bad. Here's a suggestion. When you remove the suspect stick, take the other good stick and put it in the bad stick's slot.

If it boots up you know the "bad" stick is bad. if it doesn't then remove it and put the "bad" stick in the good slot. If it boots you know the slot is bad and you need a new motherboard. Clear as mud?
