Testing your computer’s memory or RAM (Random Access Memory) to check is very important because it can cause multiple problems in your computer, such as repeatedly automatically rebooting. Testing it for errors will show you if it is time to get it replaced or if you need to check your computer for other possible causes.
The good news when it comes to testing your computer’s RAM is that it is as easy as pie. There are also free software, like Memtest 86+, that you can use to perform the test.
To use Memtest86+, all you need to do is to download a copy from their website, burn the file on a CD/DVD and run it on your computer. You will need to restart your computer and boot it from the CD to run the test. The test will do everything for you and will report any hardware problem. Of course, if it does find one then it’s off to the computer store for you to buy a replacement. There’s no need to sweat it because they’re quite affordable (compared to other computer parts, let alone an entire computer) so there won’t be a need to take out a loan just to get one.
