So recently I've been having several games crash when I try to start them and Windows was giving me a memory error, very odd. But then today when I went to turn on my PC, it started to boot, posted (I heard the beep) then froze at the screen where it says the mother board brand I have, I can move on to the post by hitting tab, but then it sticked on the memory test for about 20-30 seconds then when it gets to verifying the DMI Pool data it sticks for about 5 seconds.
Just yesterday this whole process took about 5 seconds, now its taking about a minute. I was just wondering if anyone knew an easy way for me to check my memory to see if thats what is causing the error?
Also, you can run Prime95 to stress your computer too.
Edit: Of course, you're having issues getting past the BIOS...so... yeah, that's a bad sign. I dunno, try rearranging the slots your memory is in, I guess?
I can't tell from your description if you're able to get to the point where you can get into the BIOS or not.
