If you cannot find a way to use a computer with a 32 bit OS and make the floppy or to make a CD or USB drive, you could simply post the system outside the case using your spare parts. If you can boot to the BIOS, you'll then know that you do not have any DOA parts. From that point, it should simply be a matter of tuning the BIOS if you have stabiliity issues.

Do you have a neighbor or friend with a computer running 32bit XP?

I have some friends with 32 bit systems but in general it seems floppy drives have gone the way of the Dodo, LOL. Most have prebuilt systems and now adays no one seems to include floppies in their builds these days. I guess its only diehards like me that still want one. MAybe I can find a system at the local officemax that still has one and can sneak/use it to create a disk.

Now that you mention it I think I do have a spare IDE dvd drive I forgot about, LOL. That would make things a lot simpler

Will have to go dig thru my spare junk box and see if I can find it.

Its not so much that I like to do things the hard way its more a case of between my disabilities, both mental and physical, old age, and College I get mixed up and miss seeing the simple solutions.

I'll be sure to add my input even if it sounds rudimentary then.

You stated earlier that you have flash drives. Have you tried making a bootable flash drive yet?

www.bootdisk.com

Specifically, this link: http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm

Once you do that, all you have to do is to add the Memtest.exe to the proper folder on the flash drive, boot off the drive to DOS, and run the .exe file.
