Default Bootable DOS Disk

I have a PC thats exibiting errors in Memtest86 like crazy. I tried up to seven sticks of RAM individually. I was told that the problem may actually be my AMD X2 4800+ processor. The problem is that I can't get this PC into windows due to constant blue screens of death. Is there a bootable ISO image that would allow me to boot from DOS and run the Prime95 stress test like Memtest86?

It could be wrong settings in BIOS. Enter BIOS by pressing F1,F2,F10 or delete key -- depending on your mainboard -- as your computer starts, and set the motherboard to "fail safe" and then "save and exit". Later you can get the timings (such as memory) set up correctly.

UBCD has prime95.
