Default Will the torture test, test ALL available memory?


I have an AMD XP system with 3GB of RAM. I have both Windows XP and Vista installed on separate partitions but since upgrading the RAM to 3GB, Vista fails to boot and shows various STOP blue screens. However, I can boot into XP with no problem seemingly.

I have run Memtest86+ and Windows Memory diagnostic, both of which found no errors. However, I would like to test the memory fully within XP.

Will Prime95 run as a torture test, test ALL the available memory? I can only set a maximum of 1842MB in the CPU section on Prime95 but I'm not sure if this setting effects the torture test. If so, how can I increase this or is there a better method?
