    Download Memtest floppy image:
    Extract the zip file
    Insert a blank floppy
    Double click on Install.bat

    Restart, confirm CMOS set to boot from Floppy
    All done :)

    From README.txt, inside the extracted zip "floppy" folder:
    Also run Memtest for 7 Passes on your Ram (approx: 4Hrs)
    Any faults what-so-ever, discard the Ram card and purchase new
