You can't. RAMBUS needs to be installed in matching pairs

Run Memtest86 on each stick by itself

Ah, ok, then if there are 4, you can still test each stick paired with an already tested one

If 2, not sure

Probably dirty/dusty connections, maybe you need to blow out the dust. I assume it's an old computer.

Yea test a few combinations until you know you have 2 good sticks, then test one of those good sticks with each other one

Remember which slot you put the good one in though, so if you get an error, you know which stick it is
