Are you saying I need to remove a stick of memory and start the computer - then replace the first stick and start the second stick?

So I just remove one of the memory sticks and start the computer. How do I use the memtest on the USB drive when starting each drive up? How will I know if I have a bad memory stick?

Removed and started up each RAM Stick individually. Both started and allowed access to the internet. Does this mean I don't have a memory issue?

I am unsure as to which test you have done and which you have not
MEMTEST stresses the ram
It writes data to the ram stick, it then reads that data and then writes gain, each pass of the test writes data differently, that is whay it is important to complete at least 5 or 6 complete passes

The test of an individual stick is GOOD but not simply on booting and using the browser, as that DOES not stress the ram.
