MemTest86 - Frooze From CPU
 
I ran MemTest86 for 17 hours on my 4x4GB sticks of RAM. I went through 9 passes. During the 9th pass, I received the error: 'Unexpected Interrupt - Halting CPU0'. Is this normal? What does this mean?

Even after all this time people still have no clue on what memtest to run.. really people?

Its MEMTEST86+

you don't need to do 9 passes unless you need to have your RAM stressed for several hours at a time. I wouldn't worry about it. A few passes you're fine. Most of the time it's just fluke anyways

So I should be running MemTest86+ instead of MemTest86?

Yes, the one from here: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
