All my live cd's seem to have gone bad.

that might indicate you have a DVD/CD reader writer which is going bad...they DO wear out. if in a smokey or dusty environment it might be helpful to use a commercially available cleaning disk, using the wetting solution provided with the disk.

The only dvd and cd that
boot are a net 12.3 cd and the 12.3 dvd. Booth have the memtest86=
VERSION 4.20 which I used.

those are GOOD to use.

remove the RAM sticks (how many do you have?)

Asrock motherboard with two memory slots and two sticks, 512 and
10xx M

that does not sound good to me, and it _may_ be your problem.. i've not had a Asrock motherboard in a while but when i did it required _matched_ RAM sticks, that is TWO 512s, or TWO 1 Gigs, etc..

Used the pencil eraser and cleaned the bar ram. Reinstalled and
ran the memtest again. Result, bad ram beginning at 1024 up to
above 1080. No time today to wait for the end address :(.

so, what happens if you run just ONE of the sticks?
and, then run the other, alone?

Qualification is problematic where I live. Could try to exchange
the bad stick at the seller

have you identified "the bad stick"?

it may not be 'bad' but rather just 'wrong' not every stick which will fit in the slot can be used--you must read the owner manual to know precisely which sticks of which sizes and speeds will work correctly with your motherboard.....and, as mentioned above, you might have two perfectly good sticks if used alone, but which will not work together!

Would like to first look into Badram and Memmap solutions.

do as you wish with those, i know nothing about them.

in my opinion, based on the info you have provided so far i would guess the problem is likely to be mis-matched ram sticks...the motherboard owner manual should precisely identify what sticks are usable, and in what combinations.
