If you have an instable computer and you think it may be caused by its memory, you should run a memory diagnostic test. There are many memory diagnosis utilities available; but if you need a fast memory check in Windows® 7, there is a simple tool from Microsoft®. The Windows® Memory Diagnosis test is performed before the operating system is launched and provides quick information about your computer’s memory status. Learn how to execute this test by reading the instructions below.

Windows® 7 memory test instructions:

  1. Click on the “Start” button.
  2. In the search box write “memory” and press enter.
  3. You have two options:
    » Restart now and check for problems (recommended) – The computer is restarted and the memory test is performed immediately.
    » Check for problems the next time I start my computer – The memory test will be run the next time you reboot the operating system.
