How To Troubleshoot RAM Memory

How To Troubleshoot RAM Memory


When you have memory problems, you know you are limited in your troubleshooting
and hopefully you will be able to resolve the problem quickly. Its a great idea to first verify
the problem exist.
Shutdown and reboot your computer to see if the problem re-appears. Sometimes rebooting
the PC will correct the problem and you'll be on your way.

Memory problems are normally caused by defective memory chips, installing the chips
wrong,and the memory being configured improperly. So often, the suspected memory
problem may be due to software, especially if new software was recently installed.
Many seemingly memory problems are sometimes problems coming from other
components. If you see error messages on the monitor as the system boots up, be sure to
write the message down for reference later in troubleshooting.
Memory problems can come from brand new computers. When this is the case,you'll need
to troubleshoot the computer as a whole. In this case, contacting your PC's support will be
your first line of defense.
If The Computer Fails To Boot: If you installed new ram memory, check to be
sure the memory modules are completely installed. It may be that they are not fully seated
in their banks.
Check the same even if your computer is brand new. Installation at the factory often lead to
computer failure by employees making mistakes when computer assembly is done.

If Computer boots but the screen is blank: this is another symptom of loose
memory chips. Another cause may be you are installing the wrong type of memory.
This problem can also be caused by video display problems. If the monitor brightness and
contrast are turned down,the blank screen will be the result. And a loose or uninstalled
video card will produce the same failure.
If Computer Produce Error Codes: write the code or codes down and look up
the codes in your user manual or support web site. If you install mismatched memory
chips,certain error codes will appear.

If PC boots but all memory not recognized: check to see if you installed the
right type of memory. Again, even if the computer is new, verify this by contacting your
PC support by phone,or email.
THAT "General-Protection Faults" Error is caused when two or more
software programs are trying to use the same memory address. In most cases, simply
rebooting the computer will correct this.
