5.1 How Windows Vista Automatically Detects Memory Problems
Windows Vista analyzes problem reports (as part of the Problem Reports
And Solutions tool), it can determine that memory problems might be a
source of the problem. If this happens, Problem Reports And Solutions
prompts the user to run Windows Memory Diagnostics, as shown in Figure 4.
From this page, users can click a link to either immediately restart
Windows Vista and test for memory errors or to wait until the next time
the computer is restarted.
