Default Memory Error BSOD

Evenin'
So I'm happily playing an online game I like and I get the ever lovely BSOD.
Whenever I usually get BSOD I just google the driver name and reinstall w/e it is and that usually sorts it out.
However lately I've been getting a stop error without a driver message
Stop 0x0000008E - which after Googling and sending the error report turns out to be a memory problem. Windows website directed me to use its Memory Diagnostic tool so I had a look at that and honestly, I had no idea what to do.

Was wondering if anyone could help me out with an easier solution to try and figure out what went wrong, or maybe an easier guide to using that tool
Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Memory Error BSOD

do you use Vista?

if so, save any work first then...

type in "memory" in the start menu search bar


When the program starts you have two options: Restart now and check for problems or Check for problems the next time I start my computer. choose restart now



let it restart, something like this should come up


just let it run it's course and if there are errors found, there will be a pop up window upon restart

Sorry I use XP >_<
Whats the .exe of that program? Couldn't I just run it through the run command? Or is it only Vista?

That's a program within Vista.

Download this ISO:
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Burn it to a blank CD with this (use the "burn image to disc" option):
The Official ImgBurn Website

and then boot off of the disc and let it run for a minimum of 4 hours.
