One of the first things you should do when you start having problems with your computer is to check your memory. This is a very easy task to do and can be done in most modern computer BIOSes. To check your memory, go into the BIOS and look for a screen that says “Memory” or “Memory Status”. On this screen you will see a list of your installed RAM modules and their status.
If one of your modules is not working properly, you will see an error message on this screen. You will also be able to see how much memory each module is using. If one of your modules is not installed or is not working, the computer will not be able to use that memory, which can lead to problems.
