    Hi Guys,

    I have made some upgrades to my tower, so to start, I returned my bios to default settings (Award). One thing that has become annoying, and I cant seem to find the right disable in the Bios, is the memory test. I previously had it disabled, but I would like to disable it again. What setting am I looking for? Thanks in Advance.

    in my bios it basically says startup memory test... or something like that..

    dbl check your bios.. it should be there..

    most often times you can skip the check by pressing spacebar or some other keyboard button...

    Have not heard of an auto memory test disable in Win 98 / XP etc on bootup.
    Manualy -------- press "escape"button .
    Anyone else know ?

    Go to the Quick Power On Self Test (found under Advanced BIOS Setup on my Mobo) and Enable.

    the o/s is not doing a check.. this is a pre o/s load check done by the mobo... settings are either in the bios or on older boards perhaps with jumpers... though this would be odd

    esc might well work on some mobo's... space/del/enter work on others...
