Reoprt the test results, not problems only.

Because without the test results we can do nothing more.

Yup, I'll do that.

I'm out right now, I'll be home in a few hours and I'll run Prime 95 followed by memtest.

Quick question about memtest, how many passes would be recommended?

Sorry to bother with all these questions, if an error did pop up while I was asleep/away from the computer during the test, would it be harmful at all to have the test continue with the error?

I did the Small FFTs test and monitored the temperatures, no errors or warnings on the 4 workers. Temperatures for the cores did not exceed around 72 degrees with the temperature next to 'Package' peaking at 76 degrees and remaining stable between 72-76 degrees.

I'll run memtest next, probably tomorrow so I can monitor it and stop it just in case an error pops up.

How long did you run Prime95 for? I recommend around 2 hours.

This is a strong indication of a failing CPU so please run it for around 2 hours.

Does that always mean that it is a CPU problem? It would just be a pain if it was a CPU problem since I have very little experience when it comes to this.

Oh... I only ran it for 1 hour thinking that it would be enough, my bad.


EDIT: Just to add, these errors only occurred when I was browsing/listening to music, no problems come up when I'm gaming... I don't think that makes a difference, but I just thought I'd let you know.

A lot of the time it means a CPU fault has occurred but not always.
Just post back the results.

One thing at a time.

Thank you for taking your time to reply.
I'll get back to you tomorrow once I run memtest for the recommended length of time, I don't really want to run it overnight just in case an error comes up.

It's a relatively new computer so I'm just hoping that it isn't serious...

I would recommend running it overnight, memtest86 will never stop running unless your computer shuts down or you stop it.
An error will show up red at the bottom, you can't miss it.
