      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

How to test your RAM memory for defects

Recommended Posts

I have written a short article on how to test RAM for defects, I hope this can be useful for less experienced PC users experiencing random crashes or lock-ups of their PC, to help track down the cause.

 

You can find it here:

Comments and suggestions are very welcome!

The content is great. Very thorough. I would make a small suggestion. I would move the "Warnings" section to the top of the article, right after the title and sub-title, to encourage it being read before attempting anything.

Thanks for the compliments, I think the 'warnings' section at the top of the article would scare off some unexperienced people from even reading any further (and would disrupt the page layout too much), but I have now put a highlighted note to read the warnings section, at the beginning of the diagnostics section, to which they primarily apply.

I think it's fine where you placed it now, it wouldn't necessarily need to be at the top - only just before when you start to say take out memory, etc, etc it's enough just to say before.

Nice. Me likes.

 

In addition to the very nicely written content, the text is easy to read (neutral colours) and most importantly the text is not too long!
