MemTest – Test Your RAM Modules For Free

by James 22 November 2008 One Comment

The latest operating systems require more and more RAM (Random Access Memory). Although the prices for the memory modules have decreased significantly over the past few years they are a “must spend some cash” stuff for any computer user. This freeware, MemTest offers you the possibility to check how your memory modules behave under stress. Let’s see how it works.

 

After you download a .zip archive worth only a few KBs you have to extract the content. And that content is an executable file and a manual (you should read it before using the program).


I’ve got four memory modules in my computer, meaning two pairs of dual channel sets worth 1.5 GB of memory. Let’s test them.


I’ve left the program running for twenty minutes, in which it covered 31% of the unused RAM and found no errors. That’s good news, no need to go to the computer shop to buy RAM again.


Well, if MemTest finds errors while testing your memory modules, don’t panic. You’ll just have to replace the DIMM and your computer should be fine. However, please read the manual for more details.
Overall, I think this is a freeware program that you must have in your computer. You can download it from here, it’s free!
