I just installed new RAM into my laptop yesterday. (PC2700 RAM, AMD Athalon 64) Like a good super user, I ran Memtest86+ to make sure the new RAM was good. The results were unlike anything I had seen before: On the second pass, in the middle of test 8, memtest printed "Unexpected Interrupt - Halting" to the screen and died.
Unexpected Interrupt - Halting Type: Resvd eax: 00000000 PC: 00004a49 ebx: 12100000 CS: 00000010 ecx: 00feffff Eflag: 00000286 edx: 12100000 Code: 00000000 edi: 10e500020
I have never seen Memtest86+ crash like that. I ran the test again and it crashed, again in test 8, this time 4% in, without completing a single pass. Does this mean my RAM is bad, or is this indicative of a deeper issue?
EDIT: This was an older version of Memtest86+, I am downloading the newer version and testing now.
