Strange results in memtest86

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?

  1. 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.
  2. i tested also with MS memory diag. tool - no error for more than 6 hours.
    when i returned to windows - the blue screens returned
  3. Maybe memory isnt the problem, have you overclocked your CPU at all?
  4. no. (btw, i tried to underclock the RAM, but it didn't help)
  5. 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
  6. 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.
