Ah right on about time.

Curious if they made it so it recognizes a few more chipsets.. .guess we'll see.

Can someone tell me how to install it and which version I should be downloading-- I tried a couple and they don't seem to work.

you dont install Memtest you burn it to a disc and boot of the disc. Grab the ISO file when you download it.
It runs independent of a OS.
Boot off it and let it run overnight.
I personally use Ultimate Boot CD for Windows Version 3.03
Released: 1/4/07
it doesnt have the new ver. of Memtest (1.70) but it has all of the Boot Programs I use.
