memtest problem

i've just bought 2GB of DDR400 and i thought i would test it
overnight with memtest, however it doesn't even start, just says "out of
memory" and then memtest crashes?

i havn't noticed any stability issues with the ram (Kingston 2 x 1GB
CAS3), is memtest just outdated and unable to test large amounts of ram?
i'm running XP SP2.

any other memtest utils out there that could do the job?

cheers.

What version are you using? The original Memtest86 is up to 3.2,
Memtest86+ is 1.6

By now you should have found the bootable ISO. Some of the improvements
of + have found their way back into Memtest86.
