72 Pin RAM Ques.

Usually 72 pin RAM needs two sticks to work. I have a 16M that burned out (?) when I added two 32M chips. Is it possible to check which 16 is dead by using an 8M as its pair? It didn't seem to work the first time, though the monitor wasn't plugged in (as I found out later). I'm too lazy to shut down the computer to test it right now.

Unfortunately not. The pairs have to be the same size to work, hence needing 'pairs'...
