What is the PC Check and how do I run it?
The PC Check is designed to help you determine if your computer meets some of the minimum requirements to connect through the Arise Platform.

1. Click “RUN” at the bottom of this page

2. Depending on your particular system, you will see up to two confirmation dialogs, please click “Yes” or “Run” depending on the prompt.

3. Wait for the check to run

4. You will see the results listed in the screen as well as the overall grade.

NOTE: If you are using Internet Explorer 8, the PC Scan might encounter errors or freeze while running. If so, please try using Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or update to the latest IE browser and try again.

What if my computer fails any of the tests?

  • CPU speed test: Unfortunately, this is not something that can be fixed. Your best option is to use another computer.
  • RAM test: Increasing RAM is an easy and very common computer upgrade. Please work with a trained technician or if you feel comfortable performing this yourself, ensure you use the correct RAM upgrade recommended for computer model.
  • Operating System test: Arise’s Clients do not accept Windows Vista or XP. You will need to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.
