    The windows 7 CD contains a good memory test that you can run by inserting the CD and booting from it and selecting the memory test. If you want something a bit better then download memtest86 ISO and burn a bootable disk.
  2. There is an Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7) that is available from memtest.org:

    How can I find this windows memory test? Does it just pop up in the autorun menu or something? Sorry noob question.

    I have downloaded that, it creates a file syslinux.cfg, copying, mt86plus, & readme. Then I boot from the USB. It says:
    SYSLINUX VER ... bla bla
    No DEFAULT or ... !
    > _

    Then it stops at that..
  4. Do you not have a DVD drive? If you have a DVD RW attached, download UBCD and burn the ISO. Then run Memtest86+ via UBCD. UBCD is bigger, but it has all the testing tools you'll ever need.
  5. --Edit--
    Got it.

    Thanks I will try any steps above, and will give best answer to the one working. Just wait. Haven't bought a CD to be burned yet..
