Actually you want to run memtest86+ after POST (before booting to windows). You can download a bootable file here about 1/2-way down the page and burn it to a CD or USB stick.

Download the bootable file to your flashstick, plug it into an empty USB port, power-on your system, select boot from USB (you may have to enter your BIOS to select the first boot device = USB), and the system will boot to memtest86+ after POST. It will then run about 8 series of tests, and it will take about 45 mins to complete if the RAM passes all the tests - if the RAM does not pass, you will see red errors on the lower half of your monitor.
