Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)

From:

http://www.memtest.org/

You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.

make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows

http://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm

After installation, right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.

Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.


Insert in non-functioning PC, set the PC to boot to the cd-rom first in the boot order section of bios (get there by pressing f1,f2, or del depending on machine while memory is counting up)

When boot begins, memtest will run

I downloaded the wrong thing. I am copying the image to the cd now, I will post the results when I get them.

Edit: It says I need a "recorder" and I can't press next cause it says "no recorder selected"
