Random Access Memory (RAM) is a device on the computer to store temporary data that are likely to be needed soon. Besides RAM, the other way is a computer in the data store through cache or storage. Storage is often mistakenly referred to as the actual memory that is permanent data stored on the hard drive or solid state drive while the CPU cache is a small amount of memory that is stored in the CPU chip.
Cache is data that is used very frequently. Both RAM and CPU cache is a temporary storage (memory) to be deleted when the computer is turned off. Problems in the computer’s memory are actually rare because memory cards have no moving parts so it is relatively more durable.
Here are some signs those are indicative of problems in the computer’s RAM:
1. When turned on, the computer appears to go well but when you started to wear it, you might feel the computer’s performance decreases. Sometimes, the longer decline in performance makes you need several minutes to open an Internet page.
2. Does the computer restarts unexpectedly when you’re working on something? Computers may have just booting and then reboot again. In addition to random booting, the computer may also often experience freezing sporadically.
3. The computer screen flashes with a blue screen with white text before restarting. Blue screen error can be very annoying because you do not have a chance to read the error message. Many things can cause these problems and faulty memory is one of them.
4. Do you find damaged files randomly? Check whether the broken files are frequently accessed and on-save files. If this happens, your computer’s RAM may be in problematic situation and if the condition is left unchecked, the file structure on the hard drive will slowly be chaotic so that the computer cannot booted.
