    Windows Memory Diagnostic tool.


    I can perform a Standard test without any difficulty. However, when I tried to attempt an Extended test the process halted at about 10% of even the
    first test. After about a quarter of an hour it was still at this point so I pressed Esc to cancel the test.
    How long would this Extended test normally take ? Was I a little premature in stopping it ?

    Your throughest testing would be memtest86.

    Its a boot cd thats run startup and let run.

    Remeber its an iso that needs to be properly burnt.

    Patonb has given you excellent advice. The built in test is not very relialble. Here are memtest intructions that may be a bit easier to follow

    Sorry, a little too technical for me and I cannot follow the logic of your suggestions. I am loath to interfere with something that I am not sure about .I'll have to be satisfied with the Basic "on board" Windows Memory test which tells me all is well. Thanks, all the same.
