Rather than use Memtest86, which is dated and not preferable because of this (see Known Problems at Memtest86 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memtest), I suggest using Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool - http://www.memtest.org/#downiso.

References concerning methodology which may be useful:

MemTest Manual - http://hcidesign.com/memtest/manual.html

Icrontic » Diagnose with Memtest86+ - http://icrontic.com/articles/diagnose_with_memtest86
