Need suggestions
Hey all,
looking for suggestions on programs or steps to test my RAM. I've gotten the Blue Screen of Death a couple times recently when I'm started to load up my PC. Usually when using Photoshop with a couple other programs running behind. I have also noticed that when doing stuff in Photoshop it has been running laggy. I never had any lag before. This is making me suspicious that I have faulty RAM.

t|hanks in advance

Run memtest86+ on the ram. It's an ISO file that you burn to a disc, then boot the pc to that disk. Test one stick at a time as the program will just test all installed ram at once.
