  • memtest86-4.3.7 with 5 errors

    I have memtest86-4.3.7, since my computer is old. I just ran a test for 16 hours and got 5 errors, testing all my 8 gigs of RAM. Here's a pic of what it looked like. I then hit ESC, and it started to reboot, I removed my USB and then put it back in right away. I have no log on my USB. Are there logs somewhere on my WIN 10 computer, or is this pic enough. Should I be concerned or is this acceptable?

    V4 is now a very old version of the software. There was no logging in V4.

    Yes, you should be concerned. It looks like the RAM is bad.

      Should I test each RAM stick by itself to find the culprit? How many hours should I go? I'm pretty sure that the 5 errors showed up in the first 5 hours with no more errors after that. What kind of problems should I expect with errors like this?

        Even one error is bad.

        Anything and everything is possible.
        App crashes, data corruption, spreadsheet calculations getting the wrong results, visual glitches on the screen, CRC errors, data re-transmission, BSOD, machine fails to boot, or maybe if you get lucky no noticeable effect at all.
