If you've got Windows Vista or Windows 7 just boot off your installation DVD and run the Memory Diagnostics Tool from there

otherwise you can just type Memory Diagnostics Tool into the Vista/Win7 start menu and it will reboot your PC and run the Memory Diagnostics Tool

Thanks

Just tried it so I know how it works and I passed the tests which is good to know. I ran it on Win 7 home pre from the start menu as suggested

I've always used MS Ram DIagnostic. It's way faster then memtest and as accurate.
