Memtest86+ Question.....

Hi,

 

Okay, So a couple weeks ago my computer started spontaneously re-booting, and when I'd see my desktop again, I'd see the message 'System has recovered from a serious error'.

 

I have 2 x 512 RAM. I decided to test them one at a time.

I placed one chip in an unused slot and ran Memtest86+

 

On the first pass I received error #5.

I restarted the test and it ran 24 passes error free.

 

A few days later I tried again....

On the first pass I received error #4.

I restarted the test and it ran 22 passes without an error.

 

A few days later I tried again.....

On the first pass I receive error #3, and then it ran 34 more passes error free.

 

So I'm a bit concerned,

Why would I only be receiving errors on the first pass? Does this seem like a faulty chip?

 

Thanks,

Andrew :-)
