MemTest is a RAM tester that runs under Windows. Itverifies that your computer can reliably store and retrieve data from memory. A correctly functioningcomputer should be able to do this with 100% accuracy day in and dayout.
A computer that fails these tests, perhaps because of old hardware, damagedhardware, or poorly configured hardware, will be less stable and crash moreoften. Even worse, it will become even less stable over time as corrupted datais written to your hard disk.
By running MemTest you can ensure that your computer’s RAM correctly functions. It is wise to test this when you buy a newcomputer, install new RAM, or change the configuration of your machine (forinstance, to overclock it). Are you the sort of user who likes to pushthe performance of your machine to the edge? Relying upon whether your machinewill boot after your new BIOS tweaks is a poor way to determine the safety ofyour new settings. Use Mem Test as a true test of stability.
