    Memory Test proplem


    I received an error that there was a memory error. There is charm that says " MEMORY TEST".

    l clicked on the "Charm" & a blue screen with white lettering popped up. It had instruction that the test wood take
    some time. It also said it would "automatically" Restart Rhys computer & list the results.

    On the right, lower corner of the screen it says if you press "esc" it will exit. It RAN for Hours !!!

    I tried "Everything to stop Lt! ANY HELP OUT THER FOR A SOLUTION?

    Can you boot into safe mode ?

    Are you using another computer to post here ?

    Now would be a good time for someone with more knowledge than I to join in & offer help.

    Yes, I have a total of 5, including SurfaceRT.

    Can't boot without going into the mem test program!

    Problem is, it is may MAIN computer. IT is a costly paper weight now!

    Will I have to reload every thing! UGH!

    I hope you made some backups of your files.

    Reinstalling is a pain in the neck.

    Try removing all but 2 of your memory sticks, if you only have 2 then remove 1 of them

    Disconnect all USB devices especially ext harddrives.

    then try to reboot.

    Problem Solved


    �� I READ THE MANUAL!!!

    All I had to do is reset the CMOS by switching a cap on 3 pins on the Motherboard!



    THANX ALL FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS!

    It resets BIOS to the default settings. Taking battery out doesn't always clear CMOS memory for the BIOS.
