I realized that there are two programs people are talking about.. There is memtest which is run in windows and memtest86 that is run in bios. Which should I sue .. I still can't figure out how to use memtest86. Can anybody give me any info.. In the website there are so many files to download I don't know which one to look at. thanks
My generic memtest instructions -
If you downloaded the Windows version - Pre-Compiled Memtest86 v3.1a installable from
Windows and DOS - you should have unzipped 4 files. install.bat, rawrite.exe, memtest.bin
and README.txt. Click on rawrite.exe and it will open a DOS Window. At the cursor type
memtest.bin and hit Enter. At the next cursor type A then hit Enter. Insert a formatted floppy
into A drive and hit Enter. You now have a Memtest bootable floppy that will start
automatically. Just insert it in your floppy drive and reboot.
