If your system crashes at random intervals, perform a MemoryTest first before filing any bug reports or support requests.

This page explains how to perform a memory test on Ubuntu Live CD and Installed system.

  1. Turn On or Restart the system
  2. Hold down Shift to bring up the GRUB menu.

  3. Use the arrow keys to move to the entry labeled Ubuntu, memtest86+

  4. Press Enter. The test will run automatically, and continue until you end it by pressing the Escape key

  5. Allow the test to run for at least one full pass
