SBS2011 - WHEA-Logger Event 47 a corrected hardware error has occurred - component memory - corrected machine check

SBS2011 WHEA-Logger error. This Server has an intel MB. I suspect I have a bad stick of RAM.  I'm trying to identify which stick is bad.

I've also seen where it is recommended to upgrade the bios. If I do that will I have to manually reset the bios settings or will it maintain the original settings?

Here are the details:

Usually a bios upgrade will change some settings in the bios to default values and it really depends upon the bios update.

As for checking memory the O/S may include a memory check routine that can identify a problem unfortunately it may not identify the memory slot .. you can use memcheck
Memcheck86 has a bootable iso that you can burn to optical media

Is this a custom built machine or is it a brand (HP/DELL etc)?
