And welcome to the world of consumer electronics.

I had it done at nearly 58%, but sadly i got impatient and decided to cancel. Just to be sure, if i get an error where will the results be listed over night? I've never done this before.

I just remeber a column labeled error and the other being labeled as pass, both were at 0 @ 58% (i know i'm supposed to complete it, will do so before i go to bed or tomorrow, then i'll report in.

So does it save itself somewhere as a .txt extension?

I have two pass runs done with 0 error and 51%.... Should I continue or is my ram fine ?

You need to run Memtest 8+ hours to be 100% accurate. In this situation I would not jump to conclusions or overlook memory issues. Even if memtest fails I would try to borrow 4gb from a friend or "borrow" from a store (Buy/return).

You will seriously be kicking your own @$$ if you RMA your card, wait 2-4 weeks, and have it returned with the same error. I'm not saying I don't think it could be the card. But I really think you should try the easier fixes first. I have seen situations where Memtestx86 fails, but the RAM is still causing problems (Sometimes related to voltages)

Okay, had i known i would have left it running for 2 more hours longer cause i think it's been running for a total of 5~6 hours.

Final detail i haven't mentioned, forgot about this.. i just remembered.

Following scenario:

Flickering occurs, my whole screen is distorted.

I switch on my tv and not sure if extended or in duplicate mode, doubt it matters, but one screen ALWAYS functions as intended. The one with the hdmi (tv) out put is working fine, the one connected to my monitor is not. What would this mean?

I can make this problem re-occur if you need specific information. Watching ANY clip on firefox causes my screen to flicker.

I don't think flash is capable of hardware acceleration, that would mean that the RAM used for playback would be used by your DDR3 / System ram. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

I have noticed that my work machine would crash when listening to 3-5 hour lectures on youtube. I tested RAM and sure enough there was errors. I replaced the error'd RAM, and still was happening. I too thought it was GPU, replaced the RAM just to try and haven't crashed since. I haven't been watching as much youtube, but this never happened in games (Been known to play SC2 or CS:GO casual during lunch breaks, tried Path of Exile during work, but would get ganked by mobs ~20 everytime >.<)

I suggest just leaving Memtest to run overnight one night, that way you aren't hindered by not having access to the computer / internet...

But hey, your card might be bad too man rolleyes.gif

Let's hope for the best

Thing is everything (if i recall correctly) was working fine until i formated. I'm thinking of just formatting tonight, see what happens.. Regardless, i'll most likely be doing a memtest this night and i'll report in tomorrow.

Formatted meaning clean installation of windows? Any chance you have driver conflicts? Did you install the intel chipset drivers for your motherboard?

I just had a reformat done and I am reinstalling everything. Thankfully it is mainly just games I have to reinstall. Arghhh I forgot to make a few saved game back ups..

edit: after format, the browser that would give me 100% flicker to the point i can't see anything on my screen (firefox ) this problem doesn't seem to occur anymore. I am not sure if the problem has been eliminated or not. I guess all i can do is sit and wait now. I hope it doesn't re-occur. So far i'm happy..

Any chances MSI afterburner is known to cause these issues? Anyways, i'll do what i usually do and keep the software i install ni the back of my head

also, how high are the chances of windows actually not installing something properly giving me bsods like this one? Just curious if it happens or if things like that are highly likely not to happen.

anyways, time to play the waiting game. Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far
