i'v recently started getting a messege during gameplay saying Hardwear malfunction, call your hadware vendor for support Parity check/memory parity error. I think one of my ram may have gone bad. i tried to download the memtest86 but i don't have a flopy or a flashdrive to load it to. anyhelp would be great and if i could get a simple ram test that would be nice as well. thank you =)

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool - http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

Download the .iso file. Then you must burn the .iso file to CD, creating a bootable CD from the diagnostic will run.

ok i have the memtest86 running, but it's already been 2 and a half hours. how do i know it's done? at the very bottom it says pass compleat, no errors, press esc to exit. but it looks like it's still scanning. in the middle it says Walltime 2:30. cached 3326m. rsvdmem 8k. MemMap e820. Catch on. ECC off. Test Std. Pass 2. errors 0. ECC errs has nothing under it.

Microsoft says, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315223.

I would replace the CMOS battery, rather than update the BIOS or any such action.
