    Some helpful tools that will help users pinpoint the cause of their troubles can be found here.

    ==============================
    Memory Testing Programs
    ==============================

    MemTest You must login or register to view this content.
    For you new people and rest of you guys that wonder what memtest is, well its a RAM reliability tester. It evaluates the ability of your computers memory to store and retrieve data. A correctly functioning computer should be able to do both these tasks with 100% accuracy day in and day out. A computer that fails these tests, perhaps because of old hardware, damaged hardware, or poorly configured hardware, will be less stable and crash more often. By running MemTest, you can ensure that your computers RAM is correctly functioning. Unlike other memory checking software, MemTest is designed to find all types of memory errors including intermittent problems. Therefore, it needs to be run for several hours to truly evaluate your RAM. MemTest works with any type of memory.
