Troubleshooting memory

The memory test component can perform the following tests:

Not all the memory in a system can be tested because of the operating system and applications that are installed. As a best practice, use the default setting for each test. The default settings help ensure the maximum amount of memory that is available is tested.

To test memory thoroughly, run as many loops as possible in the time you are allotted. If time is critical, and all memory tests cannot be run, then HP recommends running the Random Address test and the Noise test. These two tests can catch the most errors.
