    The memory checker has to be run on boot and not before. That is why you must put it on a floppy (like lemondrop said) or CD and have it sitting in the device while you restart. The device must also be set up to be checked before the hard drive so if you use a floppy, then the floppy should be first in the boot sequence, then usually it would be a cdrom then last the hard drive you have your OS installed on.
