A System Check is a test that will help determine if your device meets the minimum system requirements needed to attend classes on Forum. You will be prompted to run this System Check automatically when you log into Forum for the first time or if you choose to run it on your own. It is always good practice to run a System Check if you have changed computers or locations.

First Login

After logging into Forum for the first time and agreeing to the Terms of Service, a System Check will automatically start.

When prompted to begin the System Check, press the Start button to begin.

Pressing Skip will result in a failed, or aborted result. Please allow for the entire check to finish.

Once the System Check is completed, you will see the results. If you have received an error message, you can attempt to take the advice from the error message or contact tech support for assistance.

Once you have passed, you may click next to continue. An additional pre-class check will be prompted to make sure that your machine is also prepared for class. You can continue or skip if no classes are scheduled.

If you receive an error during this test, please reach out to your program coordinator or email helpdesk@minervaproject.com for assistance.
