FIrst go into bios and make sure the floppy is selected to boot before the hard disk. Usually, its under Boot options.

Then insert the disk in the floppy drive and restart, the program will initiate automatically and this message will self destruct in ...5..4...3...2.

lol no. iT would be a dos based program. You can't miss it. It would say memtest and give you options to run the tests.... If you restart with the floppy in the computer and it loads to windows then obviously it didnt los memtest.

Check boot sequence and try again. Make sure the floppy is bootbale, meaning you memtest is boatable.
If you downloaded an image and copied the floppy that way, it should work.

OR

go here http://www.memtest86.com/#download0
Under "ISO images suitable for creating a bootable Memtest86 CDROM"
Download the image and burn the image using Nero to a cd and boot from cd...very simple.
