what type of memory do you have and what timings can it accept?

ideally you want to set fast timings only when your memory can handle it...

lower timings generally can cause instability unless the memory can handle it..

Put a blank floppy in your a: drive

Run install.bat

This will create the bootable floppy with memtest on it. Restart computer with the floppy in the a: drive. Make sure the BIOS is set to have the floppy as the first boot device.

Thank you, I'll be here all night, taking donations...
