Windows 10: About using Memtest varieties Solved

    About using Memtest varieties

    Recently have had stack overflow warnings, which I understand can be a sign of RAM failure.
    Be that so, which version of the application is best for Windows 10 64 bit, please?

    I have also read the tutorial, but that deals only with creating a bootable usb stick, and nothing is mentioned about creating a bootbleCd/DVD As I lack a suitable stick but have many blank CDs, I'd like to use them.

    Are you able to advise me?

    MemTest86 Download page
    Scroll down to: MemTest86 V7.1 Free Edition

    or download the file directly if that is easier:

    There is another utility, Memtest86+, but the most recent update is V5.01 (27/09/2013)

    Can you recommend a good burner? I've just tried Free ISO burner,and booted from CD drive, but nothing seems to happen. Have I made a mess maybe. Files on CD see attachment.

    Windows 10 has a built in burner

    Extract the ISO from the zip folder
    Right click the extracted ISO
    Select Burn disc image

    I must be stupid, as I have searched for the burner, which I believe is called Windows DIsc Image, but cannot find the App.

    Sorry, not an app ... it's a File Explorer feature

    You can either pick Burn disc image from the context menu (Right click on the ISO)

    Click image for larger version.

    Pick Burn from the Disc Image Tools / Manage menu (only shows if the ISO is selected)

    Click image for larger version.

    At last I've got it and a short run of the cd proves. Thanks everyone!
    Will do full test overnight.
