Memtest is a bootable CD. Meaning, you have to boot the computer with the CD in the drive. It runs independent of Windows.

So use Nero or something to burn the ISO. Note that you CANNOT extract the files from the ISO and then burn them, you must write the ISO directly to disc.

You need to burn it as a ISO image file. If your using nero just find the burn ISO one. It will burn it to a cd. Then you restart your computer and boot from the cd.

Ok i tested each stick of ram in each slot that i was using and everything works. so i put both sticks in and everything seems to work fine, im guessing they weren't seated right.

anyways thanks for all the help everyone.
