It sure sounds like a bad RAM slot. If you are taking the exact same RAM module out and placing it in another slot, and it works, then the RAM slot has to be bad. The only solution is to replace the mainboard in that case. I assume the RAM module is DDR3L 1600? Any beeps when it is in the defective slot?

If I take the ram module from slot A to slot B, the system will come up, if I shut the system down and put it on again  it won't come up again, If I remove it from slot B back to slot A, it will work again but after shut down and I put it on again  it won't come up again, I will now take it again to slot B, it will work again and stop at shut down, that means I have to be swapping slots at each power on.. . .

It's DDR 3L

Is this RAM that has worked correctly in the past?  If so, it's likely you have a bad mainboard.

If not, and it's been that way since you tried it, is the RAM certified to work in your system?

If it's another of the same model, then it's definitely a bad system board.
