Memory diagnostics tool

    Memory diagnostics tool


    I ran a memory diagnostic test. When it's finished and began auto restart, it said something very quickly that I couldn't read, but I did catch something that said thermal shutdown? And it did NOT restart. So i let it cool off (it was hot!) and reran the test again, and it lets me log on the way it was supposed to do with the program popping up on the desktop, but there was no log to view, only the original interface. Where do i get this test info? I'm a pain in the rear I know, but I really need to fix this.?

    In event viewer i can see when i started it, but there is nothing else in Windows system that displays any results? Memory diagnostics-results are just NOT there?

    In that case, you might run Memtest86+ instead to see what it reports. It will take a long time to run this, so it would be something good to run overnight while sleeping.
