M2K MemScope is a free memory testing software program from the makers of Micro-Scope - a large suite of professional, time tested (and expensive) computer diagnostic tools.
MemScope performs a wide variety of tests in an attempt to locate even the smallest issue with your memory. Many advanced testing options are available but the "Run All" test is equivalent to tests in other programs and is a safe bet if you are not a memory expert, and you need to test your RAM “from scratch”.
MemScope is freely downloadable from M2K’s site. You will have to fill out a short form but it is indeed short, and you will be quickly transferred to the downloading link.
Getting started with M2K MemScope
Don’t expect to diagnose a memory module with only one pass. You must burn-in or stress memory modules to find out if there is something wrong. In order to fully test memory, it needs to be used at its maximum capacity - and this requires multiple passes.
You can determinate, depending on the processor speed and size of memory, how long the tests must be run in the system. For this reason the memory tests in MemScope have been designed to run in an infinite loop - so will run for as long as you set them to or until you tell to stop.
