Background

Memtest86 is a thorough, stand alone memory test for x86 architecture computers. BIOS based memory tests are a quick, cursory check and often miss many of the failures that are detected by Memtest86.

Memtest86 was developed by Chris Brady with a first release in 1994. However, the testing algorithms used have been under development since 1981 and have been previously implemented on Dec PDP-11, VAX-11/780 and Cray XMP architectures.

Memtest86 is released under the terms of the Gnu Public License (GPL).

Acknowledgments

Memtest86 was developed by Chris Brady with the resources and assistance listed below.

* The initial versions of the source files bootsect.S, setup.S, head.S and build.c are from the Linux 1.2.1 kernel and have been heavily modified.
* Doug Sisk provided code to support a console connected via a serial port.
* Code to create BadRAM patterns was provided by Rick van Rein.
* Screen buffer code was provided by Jani Averbach.
* Eric Biederman provided all of the feature content for version 3.0 plus many bug-fixes and significant code cleanup.
