    SOmething was ****ed up with the resolution, so I could not see the right side of the screen. Sooo I am not sure how it actually went, other than it completed 16 passes in about 16 hours, and "max contigious errors": 1
    Does that say anything?

    I see that i I had pressed the "y" after it was done it would have written a report in html, so I guess I will just have to do it again?

    It means that either of the sticks or either of the used slots is faulty.

    What you need to do is follow the rest of the memtest86+ tutorial

    Naaah, you see this was the "new CDrom version of Memtest"(7.1), so I think it just meant how many allowed errors or something.
    I am now running 4.3.7 which looks like the "classic".
    So far it has done 6 passes in 24 hours with no errors. Will let it run for another 24 hours and we`ll see

    You're not running the right memory test, the test I provided in my suggestion doesn't have version 4.3.7.

    Wow! Two errors on test #8 every pass!! How come all the other tests are not able to pick up on this? Memtest86+ must really be superior
    So now it`s about weeding out the faulty stick or slot I guess....

    Other than bugs and algorithm differences I have no other answer.

    Do you have any answer to why the errors stopped coming after I shuffled the sticks around? I was trying to find out which stick or slot was faulty, but I could not seem to provoke any errors. In a moment of frustration I put all the sticks back, but after 8 passes there is still no errors!

    So it seems like the problem is fixed, but I have no idea how, and I have already bought a new set of memory sticks. Do you think it would be ethical to sell off the old ones?

    I have no answer on that question.

    You could, but if not necessary I personally wouldn't because in case new problems arise then you have RAM you know from that work properly and as such you can test if it is a RAM problem.
