i the lass few days i had mysterious blue-screens in windows.
When i ran memtest86 ("official" v3.5 build), it stopped after few minutes, not with error but with some "interrupt".
later, i ran v3.5 and v2.01 and there weren't errors or freezes in more than 7 passes.
where can the problem be?

Try memtest86+ version 4.0: http://www.memtest.org/
I know that doesn't really help with your question, but the original memtest is not kept as up to date.

Maybe memory isnt the problem, have you overclocked your CPU at all?

Please provide:
1. The error reported in the blue screen
2. A list of all system specs and age
3. An explanation of anything that is new or has changed recently

the errors are
UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
and more.
there are also kernel errors in linux (i ran 3 different distributions from CDs).
but...i ran memtest v4.0 for more than 3 hours - no errors.
