RAM Stress Test Software- Discontinued

NOTE: Discontinued Product. RAM Stress Test is only valid for older systems. Not recommended for newer pc computer systems. This product has been replaced by RAM Stress Test Pro2 (R.S.T. Pro2) which supports ALL lastest memory types.



RAM Stress Test (R.S.T.) is a Self Booting, Operating System Independent diagnostic product for exercising and testing RAM memory modules in AT 386 through the latest Intel Pentium II, AMD Athlon, and Cyrix processors. Simply insert the diskette into your floppy drive and boot your PC.

RAM 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.

The 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 Refresh Circuit.

In 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.

Once 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.

R.S.T. 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.

Product Features:
  • O/S Independent - Program is Self Booting from Floppy with no interference from the operating system. Works on any systems regardless of the O/S installed (ie: DOS, Windows 3.1 , 95, 98, OS/2, Xenix, Unix, Etc.)
  • Base Memory - Test all of System Base Memory.
  • Extended Memory - Test all of System's Extended Memory (up to 2 Gigabytes). Newly improved to test the latest EDO / SDRAM PC -133 / RDRAM / DDR DIMMs.
  • Cache Memory - External System Cache RAM testing (up to 2 Megabytes).
  • Data Logging - Complete Test reports for system Burn-In and Documentation.
  • Graphic display to pin-point exact location of failure.
  • Comprehensive - The most comprehensive memory testing available at any price.
  • Also Available- RST PRO2
