Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Cannot login to account, and i ran diagnostics and it told me there was a memory compare error
Sounds like an issue with incompatible, mismatched or bad RAM sticks (SIMMs). Even if ram sticks say they will operate at lower clock speeds, this does not always happen. You need to find the RAM in your computer and check the SIMMS. If they are different, you will need to find one that is the same as the higher speed (better performance) or the lower speed (less money). If they are identical then one of them may be faulty.
If your laptop is still under warranty, have Dell look at it. If not then you should be able to do this yourself using internet help videos or find a reasonably priced repair shop.
You may also try the following, remove the memory SIMMS and clean the edges. Use something like an airduster to remove any particles in the case and then re-insert the RAM.

create a usb boot pen with your orduring boot time press F8 and choose security mode, reach to your hard disk and delete all trash you know you don't need, then shutdown the system and restart usual way.

1. reseat the ram
2. at the buttom part of the laptop you will see a window covered which will allow you to remove and have the ram be reseated.
3. take out 1 ram firs then run test then run again the test using the other slot. please test each ram on each slot. check if the faulty if the ram or either of the rams of one of the slots. if both ram passed on one of the slots means that ram is ok and slot is not, so then replace the motherboard. if one ram errors on a slot which the ram passed then that ram might be faulty and needs replacement.
