    Yeah, what fitz said. memtest is the only memory testing program I will even use at this point.

    I personally always grab a copy of the UBCD. It provides many other utilities that are always handy in a pinch!

    Thanks guys,
    used memtest86+ and it confirmed the ram had an error, changed the ram and computers running ok now and my mate is very happy.
