Continuing on with my memory testing saga ;)
The Memtest86+ program I'm using is from the UltimateBootCD.
Could it be Memtest86+ 4.10 that is corrupted?
Reason being it locked up after running for 25 minutes.
There were no patterns being written to memory, and no
errors on the screen. The '+' was flashing but that's all.
So I did a warm reboot, and started Memtest86+ again, and
this time it did not even fully load into memory and start
running. I just had an incomplete Memtest86+ screen sitting
there doing nothing. Should have took a picture - sorry.
Next time rebooted it ran fine. Something really weird is
going on here.
I'm now running my version of Memtest86+ (4.00) that I
downloaded and md5sum checked myself. This is the version of
Memtest86+ I originally used to check the memory in 2006
when the memory was purchased.
These recent memory tests were done with the Memtest86+ from
the UBCD, as I could not find the CD I burnt. Dug it out now
