How to Test for Corrupted Memory?

Recommended Posts

  Corrupted memory can cause problems for computer users, ranging from sluggish software to operating instability and crashes. While there are utilities that are designed to perform memory tests from within the operating system, these programs can't always detect memory corruption because there are too many programs accessing the memory while the operating system is loading. To receive accurate results when testing for corrupted memory, use a a utility that tests the memory before the operating system boots up.



1.Burn the memory testing software that you wish to use onto a CD using your preferred CD authoring software.


2. Insert the CD into your computer's CD or DVD drive, clicking "Cancel" if AutoPlay attempts to launch the program on the disc. Reboot your computer.

3. Wait for the first BIOS screen to appear, then begin pressing the key (such as "F2" or "F12") indicated to access the "Boot Menu" or "Boot Order Menu." Make sure that you aren't pressing the key to access the "BIOS Setup" menu.


4.Choose the CD or DVD drive in which your memory testing disc is located and press "Enter" to select it. When prompted to press a key to boot from the disc, press any key on your keyboard.


5. Wait while the memory testing software automatically begins checking your memory for errors. Allow the software to run for at least 15 minutes, though 30 minutes or longer is recommended. The longer the software is allowed to run, the more accurate your test results will be.


6.Close the software and reboot your computer once you are finished testing. Eject the disc from the CD or DVD drive and allow your operating system to boot normally.
