Hi, Michael.

We had a RAM tester back in the day, but memory that it passed still 
gave errors in the real systems we were using. I screen memory in the 
system it is installed in using Memtest86+ then run Charles Cazabon's 
user-mode "Memtester" on the running system to assess its reliability:

HTH,
