Default Asus x509f disable onboard ram possible?

Hi guys!

Is it possible to disable the onboard ram on this model?

During boot I get artefacts and the laptop hangs.

Asus X509F, mainboard x409fb rev 2.0.
Disable onboard ram:
Thanks to the boardwiev and schematic, I found out how to shut down the onboard ram.
This configuration works, tested, I admit it's not professionally done, when soldering with hot air all 3 too small resistors flew away, I replaced them with a piece of wire and it works without a problem. Correctly, all 3 small resistors from the left side should be transferred to the right, to the positions where the piece of wire is now. I believe you will do better than me.
