Don’t use Memtest86 3.x on newer computers

So I was troubleshooting this Toshiba Notebook when I wanted to check if the memory/RAM was in working order. Here comes in Memtest86. The only problem was that I didn’t have a dedicated CD-R boot CD made of the latest release.

I used an old version of Memtest86 it was version 3.3 or something. It loaded and ran the tests. Saw the CPU as a Intel Pentium III @ 2.0 Ghz.  In actuallity the CPU was an Intel Pentium Dual core @ 2.10 Ghz
