    no thats not a stupid question. I havent been able to use memtest cos my floppy drive aint connected...cos this stupid mobo has the floppy connecter under the last pci slot and that pci slot has my audigy 2. But i guess i'll remove it and give it a try.

    Is there a reason why you can't load memtest (use86+ ... not 86) on a CD and run it?

    hmm never thought of that....but i'd have to load memtest only right? and nothing else. In other words the CD will only have about 1mb of data?

    Haven't tried it myself but it should work so long as you can boot from the CD ROM. The boot disks I use have a whole lot more programs than the one but they have been assembled by pros. At less than $0.50 each these days it should be a cheap experiment.

    ran memtest86+ 1.65 and another software called MemTest 3.4 by Hci Design. Both didnt show any errors. Also, just recently i open windows explorer and clicked on one of my SATA drive's partitions and the comp just hung. So i'm thinking its either the SATA controller or the Drive itself. Sadly i dont have another pc with a SATA mobo to test my SATA drive.
