Memtest86 "Unexpected interrupt, halting"

My PC is a Dell Dimension 3100, running XP, Sp3; I suspected a Ram fault & on running Memtest86 I got the message above. Do I just assume faulty RAM?

  1. Try running memtest86+ again. If you continue to get the error, your RAM is bad. Then you have a couple of options:
    -- you could try using the BIOS to reduce the RAM speed or increase the latencies - but I'm not sure Dell allows those changes.
    -- replace the RAM.

    Note: If you have 2 sticks of RAM, remove one and run memtest86+, then run it again on the other stick. That way you'll know which stick is bad.
