I have the exact same issue with the same model. I was a solder technician in the Navy for many years and did some trouble shooting. When I put pressure on the ram stick and started the machine, it would not beeped. Lookingbeep. Looking further, it seemed the ram slot pins were not sticking out far enough anymore. I decided to solder my stick of RAM on each pad for the connection to help them “make a connection".

Long story short, it didn't end up working. The soldered RAM still works and I just use that 8GB stick in the working slot.
 
Selling the laptop as is, or I may try to install a new ram slot if I can find the part. Adding to old thread
