  • Run MemTest >3 days?

    I will be away from home for 4 days - is it OK to run MemTest while I am away for this long?

    I won't have any remote access or somebody from home that could turn it off

    I have never run it beyond 24 hours, but lately have been having BSODs, but need daily access to computer (apart from these upcoming 4 days) so I can't run multiple passes

    By default MemTest86 will stop after 4 passes (typically a couple of hours).
    If it runs 24h without error, the chance are low that real memory errors will be detected beyond this period.

    Eventually if you test long enough you'll get a soft error however.
