Also if your going to test your ram do I really have to remove the second one? The latest version is 1. Hello and welcome to Techspot. All other post will be erased. Free, with no usage restrictions See license page for Pro and Site Edition licensing details.

I’m thinking of letting it run overnight or something. Run memtest at least 7 times for a thorough test.

MemTest64 – Memory Stability Tester
Don’t forget donations are very welcome, but by no means required. MemTest86 is the original, free, stand alone memory testing software for x86 computers. It should also be noted that completing 7 passes is going to take a VERY long time with large sticks of RAM, even with ddr2 or better and a fast processor. Insert a blank floppy disk into the floppy drive, then enter the letter of the drive usually the letter a then follow the prompts.
Texts about the original version was taken from the original website and written by Chris Brady. I have come to the point of running the test but I dont actually know how to run it or which program to run it with? Any amount is greatly appreciated.

You can try another new set of RAM if you wish as per comment abovebut you should now be focusing on finding out if it is a windows problem since this test runs pre-windows boot or other hardware related problem.
Its maybe a little to late to post but.
Unfortunatly, the original memtest v3. Already have an account? The latest version is 1. Most common example would be mixed and matched RAM, where both test out OK but when put together won’t let your system boot etc.
I have not yet to try 7times I only finished one loop. There is also menus, infos and things you can change inside the program. Some others are under-powered systems etc. It will take a while.

Do you already have an account? Memttest64, I decided to display some useful settings for the most popular chipsets. If you use Dual channel or multiple sticks of RAM, take all of them out so you have just the one plugged into the primary slot. Hi, sorry if this seems noobish, is a memtest still relevant if I’m using a laptop? I mean doing memtest it should be one ram at a time??
