Q: How do I check my computer memory?

A: Check How Much Memory You Have

If you are on a Windows machine, in File Explorer, you can choose This PC, right click, and choose Properties

Or, you can go to Settings > System >About

PC About Memory

For more detailed information about your motherboard and the memory installed, you can download and run Speccy from Piriform or CPU-Z from CPU-ID

 

If you are on a Macintosh, go to the Apple Menu, About this Mac... and it should show you the amount of memory you have and the OSX Version

About This Mac Memory\

For more information on the number of RAM Modules and their placement, you can go to System Report and look under Memory in the Hardware section

A: Check if your memory is OK

Your machine does a Power On Self Test of memory when you start it up, so if your machine is running you are halfways there to knowing your RAM is OK. But if you are getting unexplained crashes, especially random shutdowns or freezes unrelated to any activity you are doing in software, then it is worth running an extended test on the memory. You would want to set the test to run several passes of memory testing, as random errors may not show up on one test run. The testing can take hours, you can set it up to run overnight.

If you have a Windows machine

You can use the freeware utility MemTest to make a bootable USB stick or CD-ROM to reboot the machine and run the Memtest routine from the bootable media

or there are free and paid versions from Passmark or TechPowerUp

If you have a Macintosh

You can use the freeware utility Rember to test memory or you can run the built in Apple Diagnostics or for old Macs the Apple Harware Test suite
