Hi Chaps got a few dodgey computers and need to find out if the memory is shot. Does anyone know of any decent memory tests available on the web that I can download and put onto a floppy as a boot disk. Im running one at the moment but its been going for 25 hours so far. Theirs got be a quicker one surely.
Memtest86 will run as you describe from a bootable floppy, but it will keep going indefinitely unless you stop it. I just let it complete each kind of test once; half an hour at most. In my experience if you have dodgy ram it will start logging errors almost straight away.
Some people like to run the test for hours, but I can't keep the kids off the pc for that long.
