I built my pc a couple of months ago, not had any major problems with it, a couple of bsod's followed by a restart. one when I was downloading a demo via steam, one while just viewing the internet.
it all started when I viewed a web site, norton av kicked in saying a file in temp internet files was a virus, zone alarm warned this exe was trying to access the net, which I declined. yet zone alarm kept on showing up, then I got a bsod and the system restarted, I ended up having to go into safe mode and uninstall zone alarm as when the machine restarted it would get to the point when zone alarm would load and crash again and restart, after this doing the restart - crash - restart - crash - etc, safe mode and remove zone alarm was the only thing I could do to get it to stop crashing. other thing that happened since then are, comp will boot up, I get a message from norton av saying the some program has attempted to change the setting, norton will reset to default settings, and other times I load up internet explorer and I get a error this prog has caused a fatal error and will close. and the system now takes over 2 mins to boot up into windows.
Can I point out, before I got this virus, I never had a problem.
Now to the point of this message
with all these strange thing happening, I thought of trying memtest86, so I used the bootable cd option (no floppy drive) here are the results
also tried memtest86 at 1.9v and 2.0v - test results are the same (in test 2 no of errors 32767)
EDIT - there must be something wrong with the version of memtest86 v3.4 or the bootable cd, I just tried it on a 4 year old toshiba laptop with 256mb ram and the results are the same as my other machine, fails on tests 2,3,4,6 and the no of errors in test 2 is 32767
