Could Memtest86+ Miss Memory Errors?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if it was possible that memtest86+ could miss errors on my RAM.

I have 4gbs of DDR3 at 1066mhz

Could memtest miss and error? I have ran it for 7 passes and no errors and I still have BSoD's pointing to memory errors.

Yes.... all stress tests can miss errors. The longer you run a stress test, the high probability of finding an error.


However, what BSoD? Drivers can cause memory errors.

I get many different errors.

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEHfx11

Don't have access to my dump files.

Im trying to install windows 7

I get PFN_FILE_LIST_CORRUPT

I Know my disc is not bad I have used it on other PC's.

I got many BSoD's before ony my old install of Windows 7

I think it's RAM but memtest ran for 7 passes and no errors
