    I ran the tool, but after minute press F1 to change settings to ''extended'' and cache to ''disabled''. I press F10 to start test but all fields shows something like ''Running test pass _ of _: _% complete'' and ''Overall test status: _% completed''.

    Status:
    Not problem have been found yet. Although t e test may appear inactive at times, it is still running. Please wait until testing is complete

    I waited 2-3 hours but nothing happens. After that press F1 and change options to basic and test ran and progress shows. After a while I presss again F1 and chage settings to extended cache disabled, pass 3 etc. and test ran successfully. Why this happen and why I have to change multiple time options to have success?

    Hello Gerrardo,

    An extended memory test can take quite some time. I've seen it take overnight to finish before.

    Hello Brink

    But after 2-3 hours status was - ''Running test pass _ of _: _% complete'' and ''Overall test status: _% completed''. Underscores, instead numbers.

    I'm not sure about that then.

    You might use Memtest86+ instead then. I'd recommend to run it overnight while sleeping since it will take a while to finished though.

    RAM - Test with Memtest86+

    Now testing with memtest86+(6 hours - 3 passes and 0 errors). How many passes are enough? I have 2x8gb and want to test because of this. I'm not sure, how many ''beeps'' heard...3-4-5 short, perhaps.

    I will test too with hci memtest, to be sure 100% that memory not the culprit. How many copies have to run? I have 2x8gb geil evo potenza.

    8 passes is recommended to be thorough, but after 3 passes without any fails, it looks like RAM may not be the issue.
