I suspect my computer has a memory issues (I cannot change the memory because it is soldered) because it hangs randomly every few hours. I want to test the memory, and installed memtest+86 for that.

Now I get this error:

$ memtest-setup 
ERROR: memtest86+ does not support EFI platforms.

What other options do I have to test memory? Is there a way to make memtest+86 work?

Create a bootable usb memory stick with software from

Use the smallest usb stick you can find, as old contents will be lost.

Also see this youtube video.

Google has further suggestions if you search for memtest uefi.
