9.6.1. Loading the Memory (RAM) Testing Mode
Faults in memory modules may cause your system to freeze or crash unpredictably. In some cases, memory faults may only cause errors with particular combinations of software. For this reason, you should test the memory of a computer before you install Fedora for the first time, even if it has previously run other operating systems.
Fedora includes the
memory testing application. To boot your computer in
memory testing mode, choose at the boot menu. The first test starts immediately. By default,
carries out a total of ten tests.
