Stress Test (R.S.T.) is a Self Booting, Operating
System Independent diagnostic product for exercising
and testing RAM in AT 386 through Pentium II,
AMD Athlon, and Cyrix compatible processors. R.S.T.
uses direct hardware interrogation calls to implement
its test routines which allow the program to eliminate
the need for any operating system. The software
is run from one disk and the program is easy to
run. Simply insert the diskette into your floppy
drive and boot your PC.
tests are run from easy to use drop-down-menus
in manual mode or in auto automatic mode. In manual
mode, you may select from a group of test algorithms
including, Stuck High and Low, Snake On and Off,
Pseudo Random. Parity (Standard and Inverse),
Walk Left (Standard and Inverse), Walk Right (Standard
and Inverse), Checker Board (Standard and Inverse),
ATS, MATS+, Marching C, Block Move, Leak (the
most thorough RAM test available) and User Selectable.
It also tests the Data Bus, Address lines and
automatic mode, the program will select the most
popular algorithms and run a test cycle for 48
hours. The program will detect system RAM size
and begin a continuous diagnostic loop. Automatic
mode is executed without any keystroke making
it a perfect burn-in tool and is excellent for
heavy duty RAM diagnostics.
an error is detected, Ram Stress Test will identify
the exact failing memory location. The program
uses a simple and unique memory map that identifies
the exact failing chip (Yes, it will not only
detect the SIMM, but the chip on the SIMM). The
program also sounds an alarm when it detects a
failure, which allows the program to be run unattended.
The program also generates a report at the end
of each test cycle and the report may be printed
for hard copy purposes.
lets users test system RAM without the interference
of any Memory Drives, TSRs, Operating System limitations,
or Windows protected mode environment. R.S.T.
runs all tests in protected mode which may completely
and thoroughly test up to two gigabyte of memory.
This utility provides users the options of running
complicated test patterns to detect hard to find
memory errors or memory errors, which are not
detected by other test software.
