    Hello Mikey,

    You might see if you may have better luck using MemTest86+.

    Hello @Brink,

    I don't know if you want to add this to the Tutorial, but you can also extract the results of mdsched to the cmd prompt or a file.

    I ran all three parameters, Basic, Standard, & Extended.

    This is the code I used for BOTH the ID numbers associated with MemoryDiagnostics-Results . . .
    Code:
    Powershell.exe -command "& "Get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname='System'; id='1101'}^|?{$_.providername -match 'MemoryDiagnostics-Results'}
    Powershell.exe -command "& "Get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname='System'; id='1201'}^|?{$_.providername -match 'MemoryDiagnostics-Results'}
    These are the results which happen to be the SAME for Basic, Standard, & Extended . . .
    Code:
    TimeCreated : 05/09/2020 20:51:42
    Message     : The Windows Memory Diagnostic tested the computer's memory and detected no errors
    I hope this helps!
