I am pretty sure I am having trouble with some RAM in my system and I am not really sure how to check it.

Does anyone know of a good way to check out RAM or a program to test it?

Thanks in advance,

Hi there

Download Memtest86 from this link :

Make sure you download the pre-compiled package for floppy (dos/win).

This will create a bootable floppy disk that runs memtest. If you have more than one ram module in the system, you will need to test one module at a time by removing the others first. Be aware that these tests can take a long time & you may need to leave it running overnight.
