MemTest86 Pro is one of the top memory testing software that can be used for x86 systems. It is possible to install this program via flash memory or CD on the system. This program tests a computer’s RAM using a set of comprehensive algorithms and test patterns. RAM failures can cause problems such as data corruption, crashes, and strange behaviors on the computer. RAM crashes are one of the most frustrating computer problems, as their symptoms are often accidental and difficult to detect.
MemTest86 Pro is the original, free, stand alone memory testing software for x86 and ARM computers. MemTest86 boots from a USB flash drive and tests the RAM in your computer for faults using a series of comprehensive algorithms and test patterns.
The standard for memory diagnostics
- Boots from a USB flash drive to test the RAM in your computer for faults.
- Utilizing algorithms that have been in development for over 20 years.
Unreliable RAM can cause a multitude of problems. Corrupted data, crashes and unexplained behaviour.
Bad RAM is one of the most frustrating computer problems to have as symptoms are often random and hard to pin down. MemTest86 can help diagnose faulty RAM (or rule it out as a cause of system instability). As such it is often used by system builders, PC repair stores, overlockers & PC manufacturers.
