How does memtest works

I just installed some corsair memory 4 gigs(2 sticks)

I ran memtest on the mem. but I think it is failing
what am I looking for and what exactly is it doing
is it just testing the memory or it is repairing also

thanks

When a stick is unstably overclocked or faulty it will return errors. Let Memtest run for a few hours.

Errors will return as red rows in the bottom of the screen. You'll probably notice within the first minute or so of using Memtest of the RAM is faulty. There is no possible way to repair memory using software.

You let the program boot up, and then just leave it until the pass gets to 100%. If you get no big red blocks at the bottom your in the clear, if you get them, then it means you've got memory errors.

there a red blocks on the screen that says it failed
does this means that I have to return the memory
I don't see any erros on the windows side of my system

I overclocked my cpu with a different set of mem 3.0 to 3.6

the mem right now is not overclocked

are the errors real, how are these errors play on the windows part of it

should I exchange them
