    repeating memory error?


    Just ran memtest 86 and everytime I ran test 11 I got this error. Can anyone help determine what this could mean? I should also note my computer has been acting awfully strange the last month or so.MemTest86+ - Test RAM-20181212_222241.jpg

    FAILURE... You'd been better off reading the OP beforehand to understand what you're seeing. Refer to my previous post here.

    Hello @Puttputt7 and welcome to the forums. What you have as ram that has failed the memtest. What you would like to know now is if it is bad ram or bad Dimm slots on the motherboard. I would run 1 stick at a time in each Dimm slot on the motherboard. A bad stick of ram should fail in any slot and a good stick will pass in every slot. even 1 error is a failure and you can stop the test as soon as you get the first error. Even 1 error is a fail.

    Yes, that is quite normal, the more RAM you have the longer it takes. For 8GB we normally recommend running overnight to complete all 8 passes.

    Ran test for 9.5 hours and only got 4.8 passes completed. Nothing showed up so I just gonna test the other 8 another night and see if it tests any faster. Only doing 8 gb and can't believe it is that slow; don't remember mem86 taking that long. Will try to find original mem86 and see what the difference is. Is there any other mem test out there, thanks.

    Unfortunately you have to complete all the passes in one go, it does not carry on from where you left off. 8GB can take up to 16 hours on some systems.

    How soon do the errors come up if they show during the fist few minutes you should stop and then start running each stick why wait for 8 passes that's a waste of time.
    Now if errors do not come up when all sticks have ben tried in slot one then you have a slot problem back up and read what essenbe said.

    Yesterday it took four and a half hours for 8 passes on my very low-end system with a mere 4 GB of RAM.
