The purpose of this guide is to teach you how to check whether your system’s RAM (Random Access Memory) is working properly. Bad RAM can lead to a whole host of problems, often which do not appear to have a single cause – appearing as system wide glitches, blue screens, and other system trouble. MemTest86+ provides a very good detection mechanism for failed RAM, and is about as good a test you get short of actually replacing the module itself. Please perform these steps from a separate, working machine.
1. Download Mem Test86+, and unzip it to your desktop.
2. Burn the image file to a CD, as an image file.
Perform these steps on the problematic machine :
1. Put your CD in the drive and configure your machine to boot the CD.
2. MemTest86+ will start to run automatically.
3. If you want to be completely sure your RAM is ok, allow Memtest to run overnight.
4. Check the MemTest screen for any reported errors. Errors will appear as RED warnings at the bottom of the screen.
5. Hard-Reset the machine, removing the MemTest disk in the process.
