     RAM TEST

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.
    I'm running this and it's been going on for 20 hours now. Once it hits 8 passes what happens then?

    Nothing special, you jus can stop the test, but since you are having errors you can stop the test and run the test on each stick where each stick needs to switch slots to find out if the slots or sticks are problematic

    So you're saying I need to take one stick out, run the test again. Do that with another stick and different slots? Is there just a way to tell if the sticks are the issue due to the errors? Like some specific error saying it's a stick or slot.

    Oh my goodness. no! Last time I check it was a 7 passes with 300 errors. I came back to see my computer and the POWER went out; the PC reset and went back from the scan. Do I need to scan it again for a total of 8 passes or is the 7 enough? It's apparent that there's an issue

    You can stop the test if you see an error.
    I would suggest that you read the tutorial at least once (more) proper, the tutorial explains it all.

    So from my understanding the results of the test will show if my slot or sticks are messed up. I couldn't tell what it was.
    How would I tell if the motherboard is messed up besides doing the scan once more? Or do I have to run it again. If so, how does one see the results saying which RAM is faulty?

    Your question is explained in the tutorial
    To determine this you will need to test every stick of RAM in every DIMM slot.

    For example, if you have two sticks of RAM and two DIMM slots:

    If the output is like this then you have bad RAM so the stick(s) need replacing. The first stick of RAM fails in both DIMM slots but the second stick of RAM passes in both DIMM slots.

    TEST SLOT 1 SLOT 2
    RAM 1 ERROR ERROR
    RAM 2 GOOD GOOD



    If the output is like this then you should replace the motherboard. Both sticks of RAM fail in the first DIMM slot but both sticks pass in the second DIMM slot.

    TEST SLOT 1 SLOT 2
    RAM 1 ERROR GOOD
    RAM 2 ERROR GOOD

    Okay, so it's either my sticks or my motherboard that's the issue. I guess I'll have to run the tests again. How does one get result chart after the test is complete?

    I have given you the answer multiple times, although not directly but referring to the tutorial.
    You note the sticks and slots and note when errors occur.

    Gotcha, thanks. I guess I restart the scans in a little bit. I've also noticed in the past when I run graphically demanding software my screen would go make a solid red color and freeze. Just out of curiosity would this be something with the RAM?
