Mac Mini Faulty Ram Slot

The 2018 Mac Mini heralds a return to memory slots! Put away the party poppers. The storage is soldered to the board. Apple’s Mac Mini has languished at the back of the cupboard for.

I tried to upgrade my Mac Mini (late 2012) from 2 x 2GB to 2 x 8GB after ordering the correct Crucial RAM from Amazon, based on user reviews. After my first installtion attempt, I found that the Mac mini would only recognize only one of the 8 GB sticks. The Blank 1 slot was listed as empty when in the system information retrieved via apple menu. So I repeated the installation 3 times but after the third attempt the Mac mini would start and beep and the monitor screen was black. So I reinstalled the old RAM and the Mac mini would beep again after turning it on. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the top RAM slot wasn't holding the RAM tightly and the left clip plastic piece was little more flexible than the bottom piece. So I removed the RAM and inserted it at 45 degree angle and pressed hard so that it popped in place. Yet the Mac Mini beeps upon start. Even if the top slot is damaged, it doesn't want to run on the bottom RAM slot which seems to work fine. I purchase the Mac Mini in Feb 2013 and just spent over $100 to upgrade the RAM. It's a shame I will have to shell out more to fix it. Any suggestions?

Nov 21, 2018  The 'Late 2012' Mac mini models also have two memory slots but use faster still 1600 MHz PC3-12800 DDR3 SO-DIMMs. At least for now, they both officially and unofficially support 16 GB of RAM, but should this number increase in the future (Intel reports that the underlying chipset can support up to 32 GB of RAM), this EveryMac.com Q&A will be. If all the memory modules appear bad, then the problem is likely with the memory slot itself. Try testing each memory module in each of the memory slots to find if one of the slots is faulty. To fix a faulty slot you would need to replace your motherboard. Make sure the indention on the bottom is lined up correctly with the slot Heat.

I have a MacBook 17' that's about a year and a half old. Last week, one of the RAM slots failed. The computer won't start up at all with RAM installed in both slots. By removing the RAM card from the faulty slot, the computer operates as normal, only with half of its previously installed RAM.
My question is this..
I am now running the MacBook with only 1 GB of RAM. To fix the problem, I'd have to replace the entire logic board, which will cost me about $1200 (with labor). Instead of ponying up this hefty amount, can I just operate with 1 GB of RAM with the faulty logic board indefinitely? Will 1 GB of RAM create problems for me? And is the fact that I have a faulty RAM slot indicative of a deeper problem, and I'm just asking for trouble by continuing in this fashion? Thanks in advance for your help.
