memory diagnostic tool Memtest86 is a standalone memory diagnostic tool that runs from a CD on system boot. It executes a series of numbered test sections to check for errors. These test sections consist of a combination of test algorithm, data pattern and cache setting. The execution order for these tests were arranged so that errors will be detected as rapidly as possible. Tests 8, 9, 10 and 11 are very long running extended tests and are only executed when extended testing is selected. Memtest86 supports all types of memory and can be run on any operating system.

Amazing memory test tool 5 stars by busybusy Jun 18, 2024 (Read all my 261 reviews)
I've been using it for years and it has been a helpful utility to solve many computer issues due to memory problems. I appreciate that Passmark is continuing to update this Memory Test Tool. show Review details
The best there is 5 stars by OnePiece Aug 10, 2013 (Read all my 12 reviews)
This program, as well as memtest86+, are the best memory (RAM) test programs you can find. It implements the most important memory testing algorithms (there are more advanced algorithms out there, but those would take much more time and are suited to specific types of memory only), so you get a quite good coverage of memory faults. For some time this version was not supported, but recently Passmark took up support so it should be up-to-date again. Use either this (I didn't have any problem of burning this to a bootable CD, although nowadays I rather put this to a bootable USB disk), or memtest86+, and you cannot go wrong. show Review details
Good at what it does 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 15, 2008 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I use this for all memory tests and basically, it detects when ram is bad and is very thorough. It's easy to use, free, and is trusted for results by many techs. I feel it's a must have. show Review details
