It's not only the UPS driver who has evil in his heart.
I would absolutely run a RAM test, may be nothing to do with the drive
Any PC you pull from storage, should have some
basic health tests done on it. There's no harm in trying
that. I did that on my new machine only a couple days
ago... just in case.
How do you test RAM?
Hopefully its a Windows program, not linux....
The memory test should be run from a bootable cd
free version is fine
If there are any errors at all you do not have to run the test any
further, your memory is either bad or the contacts need to be cleaned.
Any serious errors will show up within the first few minutes, but I'd
let it run for at least an hour.
But like I said, any error at all you can stop the test
