Checking RAM Memtest86 (crash games, pc restart, overclock)

Checking RAM Memtest86

RAM is one of the most important components of the system, without which our computer would be much slower.
RAM can sometimes hurt, and unfortunately there was no warning system when it happens. Sometimes the operating system feels RAM problems, but these problems often go unnoticed and appear when your baby's world; For example in games where RAM is asked intensively, we get suddenly a crash or simply an unexpected reboot of the entire PC.

Misled to check RAM

RAM problems sometimes resembles problems that some sources have, and therefore can be easily misled. Also in error and it induces the utility from Windows, which should test your RAM, but can not do too well because while running Windows, is loaded into RAM part. Exactly how you should change as you go wheel drive (this goes).

Signs that show us RAM problems:

1. PC does not start from the first
2. At its start is one more restart
3. PC reboots out of the blue
4. PC crashes
5. We crashes during games
6. Errors installing programs
7. The entire PC hard move
8. blue screen

Why spoil your RAM?

1. The temperature
2. Manufacturing defects
3. accidental bumping
4. Aging cells (a few thousand rewrites)

How to check RAM?

Memtest86 is a small application that runs in on a live USB stick. We do not just have to put your PC to boot from the stick and all RAM will automatically start scanning.
About Memtest86've done a tutorial, which was not so detailed ... šŸ˜‰
To a certain outcome, you must run at least 86 pass Memtest10 sites.

Until May now 2 days went well with 10 installed in UEFI mode, and the hard disk very good, go tot.Acum not want no color to 10 as I installed the trial in legacy mode and degeaba.L today nush I rubbed many times, ba with 7, 10 go ba with 7.In Windows, Windows 10 not even I had installed and connected disk to see, I was thinking that if I do not leave SSD than during installation, can recovers vain!

    I over-5 years 6 use memtest.
    I already knew the program. One pass enough, no need for more (if you go in service PC does not believe that a stand hours in line just to test a bitter memory).
    This program never let me down. I consider essential for any debugger program in IT. If you work in IT (in service) it can not possibly miss memtest; if you lack nothing clearly working.

  4. CICA few Rewriting me .. I knew that RAM can be written to infinity. Since there are capacitor charging and download diodes do not flash. Infine .. but do not think I need to say more still do not think mise approve this comment

    • I have not really been paying attention to pass ... when the memory test. I looked at the cat% tested from EA gave me error ... sometimes when he was near the end. So we have some time left to test the program. Yes cam in 15 20 minutes if some errors.

    • @ Dan
      E volatile memory, is why they load and unload whatever.


      With this software you can not identify whether 2 100% memos are compatible with each other, say where his series are different or producer. Another application is the similar test method.

  5. Very good tutorials and how many.
    You can do a tutorial on how CHDK on Canon cameras.
    Thank you.

  6. Hello, I need help: I ā€‹ā€‹run memtest program after 30 seconds off my computer, be become the processor warming? I mention that I have an AMD Athlon overklocat the AMD Phenom (not by me) stock cooler and thermal paste was not changed (ie pasta has 4 years). Besides such crashuri were the reason I ran memtest. And as you bag and more blurred when turn on the computer often does not want to boot into Windows ba locks, ba go hard, sometimes you feel like going the first fast (I checked and hardware with cristaldiskinfo and tells me ii good) although I noticed that when you turn on the computer and want to boot into Windows red light on the body often turns off and remains so (obviously locks and booting) (please excuse me but I forgot what it means these two bulbs witness the cylinder with the red and green light to know that one is hard or processor). I apologize for the inconvenience and description a little unclear. Thank you !

  7. Thank you, we are replacing paste to the processor and I still buy a ram plate.

  8. So I no longer understand anything ... today I came RAM, a Kingston 4gb ddr3 to 1600mhz cl11 (memory that is on the computer and that gave me the headaches is Zepp of 4gb ddr3 to 1333 mhz motherboard ASROCK support is 880gm them without overclock mhz 1333 2100 to overclock or something, and supports dual channel). I put the new memory (kingston) with the old one, give it to start and nothing boots. Good out the old and let that new boots, and try and vice versa and so boots (what old in single channel). I beat gandu reset all bios, said and done I removed the battery, I moved cap ala over contacts other, I put it back and put the new memory only (single channel), boots perfect, then give it to run memtest and I leave an hour after a half step I was bored and given that we closed test run perfectly. Get youtube etc stay on the net and see that go, I stop and bag good memory back near the old new again no movement from the computer. Scot new memory and leave that old, boots (not like that the new law), but this time memtest runs and passes the first pass and not an error. I in this case that make me considering that work and I know so and so told me and those from whom I bought that has to go just as these new memories do not to go to but the 1600 1333 frequency. Thank you !

    • Have you checked that Max Bandwidth to be the same? This is the reason of not start with both memories installed.
      Speaking of CL that, with the lower the amount of both memory is faster.

      • zeppelin 4 gb ddr3 1333mhz cl9 ZE-ddr3- 4G1333b (hold many info about it)
        Kingston ValueRAM 4 gb ddr3 1600mhz CL11 srx8 low profile [#523669 | KVR16N11S8 / 4].
        Start by running together, boots and 8 gb recognize my window, I am.uitat and AMD overdrive and bios and thousands admits to 1333 MHz dual channel, just like this morning when I gave it a test run 6% in memtest stopped on the computer (setup was this: cele.doua memory in dual channel and overclock the CPU (the release of a core of the phenom athlon)). Now I reset the BIOS, CPU normal as I left the factory, and I gave him to run memtest, are 30% and I do not have an error

        • I forgot to tell you that in the upper left memtest under cpu clk are L1 cahe and L2 cache. L1 row to show me 128k 38737 mb / s (old memory zeppelin) and L2 shows me 512k 17245 mb / s down below them Scriri Memory 8191M 4292 mb / s (new kingston memory)

          • ready to solve the problem is the processor, because averclockului heats up and stops, we found that because every time you run the memtest with shock settings closes, and every time I run continuously without going oc. I'm sorry to bother you !

  9. I apologize for posts elsewhere, and I now go back and put overclock settings. Tomorrow let him appear in memtest and if something's not right post, I hope I do not become too insistent. Once again thank you!

  10. Anybody knows about about how many hours you gotta let you go?

      That's what I'm thinking: about about how long? I think it's depending on configuration but still I thought of a landmark ...

  11. Hi, very good article. I have a problem and I thought to ask you a question. My PC started to restart often.
    For example, I run a movie on Youtube or I'm sitting on a social networking site etc. Sometimes it's starting to get out of the blue again. I'm sometimes saying that there are times when I go to 1-2 to restart a day, sometimes after it reboots and enters the desktop if I do any kind of activity opens a picture, a folder is restarted.
    I was at 2 service, but the break. The first one cleaned the dust, and the second changed the HDD, but the symptoms remained the same. What do you think that would be the problem? I mention that after the HDD change not only did the same symptoms remain, but at the start makes a hell of a noise as he enters the desktop.

  12. Hello, Happy Birthday!
    I can bother you with a problem ... maybe you've met and you give me an idea of ā€‹ā€‹what I could do
    my laptop makes some figures .. that is, I open it in the morning, the window image appears and then the black screen does not respond to any kind of order
    if I close it forcibly and reopen it takes it
    after a few hours the same
    I reinstalled the windows, I scanned the bad hdd I scanned the SSD and the ram
    everything seems to be okay
    I left my laptop turned on for half an hour, when I returned, the same black screen, did not respond to any orders ...
    would you have any idea what to check and / or where would the problem be? Thank you

    I bought in the 3-4 months (if possible) components for my new PC and about 3 weeks with the CPU acquisition I put into operation but unfortunately I started to despair because of all kinds of crashes in the game and it shows me all kinds of corrupted bugs and files though the game is legal, pages that crack in browsers), of course, it all culminates in a blue screen with messages like "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED" or "FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE" or "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION" or "UNESPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP"
    The configuration is as follows:
    Asus motherboard strix b450-i
    Ryzen 5 2400G processor (integrated graphics) cooler stock
    RAM 16 GB (2 Ɨ 8) Addition xpg gammix d10 3000Mhz (used at 2666)
    SSD nvme Samsung 970evo 250 GB
    SSD Kingston V400 60 GB (old)
    Source Enermax NAXN 450W (old but good, did not trouble the old one)
    Windows 10 pro x64 with OEM license
    Assemble "as the book"

    I'm now testing the RAM with Memtest86 + for almost 2 hours and making 1520 passes with "ZERO errors". I really do not know what else to try to figure out what the problem is, I've tried older drivers, and nothing. I had a blue screen right after installing Windows without installing the drivers.
    Please someone give me some advice!
    Thank you!

    Try one RAM playlist and see what it does.
    Look in the processor specifications to see if it supports your RAM.

    I tested with Memtest86 + with its automatic testing for 4 hours and did not give a bug but I resumed the tests from #1 to #11 so I manually chose the test to do again at the last test #11 [bit fade test 2 patterns ] gives me errors (million errors) on 37-39% on both memories, either separately with one plaque in one of the two slots (tested on both slots).
    The memories are the same as the specifications, but they were not a kit, I bought them separately.
    On the site AMD, ryzen 5 2400G, the memories supported are passed:
    System Memory Specification 2933MHz
    System Memory Type DDR4
    Memory Channels 2

    So my memories ddr4 Adda xpg gammix d10 8gb 3000Mhz should fit, bios are set default to 2666Mhz.
    Can both defects be defective at the same percentage of verification? (too strange)
    Is it possible that the motherboard is faulty?
    Dc errors only appear in this test #11 [bit fade test 2 patterns] and in the rest of the tests is ok?
    Does anyone know what is happening and what should I do?
