|Almost any live linux cd can boot to memtest. |
Any Vista or Windows 7 dvd can be used. Need to do F8 then escape then tab down to memory diagnostics.
Might get a ultimate boot cd and try it.
Find out which brand of drives you have installed. Most OEM's have diags for their drives and most do many tests on any drive.
