Diagnosing Windows Memory Errors

Some computer memory errors are easy to identify, whereas, others go unnoticed. The computer system usually display the error codes, a few times however, it doesn't. When it does, it makes it easy to identify a bad computer memory module. There is a diagnostic feature in both Windows 7 and Vista that lets you identify and fix memory problems. Some third party utility software programs also help to dictate and fix memory problems as well. Whenever there is a memory error, then there is a problem with the memory chip or perhaps it may be a computer hardware problem.

Memory Diagnostic Tools

Both Windows 7 and Vista have Memory Diagnostics Tools preinstalled. This tool usually pops up whenever a memory problem is detected silently on the background. To manually run Memory Diagnostics Tool, click the Start button-> Control Panel-> Type "Memory" or "mdsched.exe" in the search box-> Click on "Diagnose your computer's memory problems" and then choose when to run the Memory Diagnostics Tool. Bear in mind that running the tool would require rebooting the system. Therefore, you have to first save your work and close all programs. Unfortunately, if you are using XP, you will have to use a third party tool to analyze your memory.
