Memory stability test

  1. Started playing a game with some friends. Its called RF online.

    I keep getting lockups. I've loaded up some other games like CoD4/5, roller coaster tycoon3, and havnt had any lockups.

    I've tried lowering my settings in bios for my ram, still getting lockups.

    I'm trying to isolate the issue.

    Anyone have some input to help me with the issue. All help is appreciated

    Thx.

    check the following (in order)
    1. RAM - test with memtest 86+ booted from a CD/floppy
    2. PSU - test with a tester tool AND a multimeter under load
    3. test registry for errors
    4. check drivers
    5. check online speed (is it sufficient)
    6. check game version - is there a patch?
    7. check BIOS (if necessary - for the latest version - this is a last resort)
