Hello bangdosa, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Was the Memory Diagnostics Tool able to completely finish running before checking the log?

I believe it did. I know it got to around 80%ish before I looked away. Next thing I saw was windows starting. should I try it again and see if it does finish? when it finishes should it automatically restart or results show?

It'll automatically restart when ran.

It may take a bit before it actual shows up in Event Viewer since you just ran it.

Did you run the tool from within Windows? (not in Safe Mode)

If you can't get any results, then you might give a Memtest86+ a try instead.
