Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
Based on the well-known original memtest86 written by Chris Brady, memtest86+ is a port by some members of the x86-secret team. Our goal is to provide an up-to-date and completly reliable version of this software tool aimed at memory failures detection.
Memtest86+ is, like the original, released under the terms of the Gnu Public License (GPL). No restrictions for use, private or commercial exist other than the ones mentioned in the Gnu Public License (GPL). Texts about the original version was taken from the original website and written by Chris Brady.

The original was a good app, I'll have to check out this latest one.
I've always been more partial towards Docmemory version 2 but it'll be interesting to see how this one "stacks up" against both Docmemory and the original memtest86. Microsoft even put out a bootdisk based version of a memory checker, although I've never tried it. MajorGeeks has a mirror of Microsofts beta version here. One or more of these memory diagnostic programs is a must.. Any windows memory checker will not be able to test the sections of memory that is in use by windows.
