do you have another stick of memory you can test in another slot? BTW, if it's a dual chanel mobo, and u fried slot 1 for example, dont use slots 1 &3, try 2&4 instead.

so, umm, err yeah

next time use half your brain at least
im my experience you really have to be stonned not to notice something like that
You have experince frying computers while stonned?

Anyways, I believe the motherboard will work, try different slots first, hopefully your motherboard is not picky on what slots you fill.

My motherboard has 4 memory slots--the first two are for DDR sticks, second two or for SDR memory. The first is the one that got fried.

Everything else is okay, including number two. Unfortunately, I don't have a stick on my at the moment, but I'll just buy another stick and use slot two instead (for DDR memory).

Hopefully that'll have been the worst of it.
