Same again, no errors.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there an alternative diagnostic tool?

No, there is nothing wrong from your part. And memtest86+ is the best available memory diagnostic tool.

I am wondering why it is happening ... it is showing memory corruption even with DV enabled but still memtest86+ detects no error.

I think I need some more eyes there to see your issue. Will ask others to have a look.

Have you ever overclocked?

When did the issue begin?

When was the last Clean Reinstall?

Did you allow Win7 to provide the drivers it wants?

My 2 cents worth if you have not looked already - oops should have said is look at the PSU volts


Using HW Info PSU

Download HW Info and pick the right bit version - HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 -Download -(copy and paste thissite into the search bar) If you do not need the running information in thesmaller right hand panel close it. In the left hand window click on the + forthe individual device groupings and they will open out to the various components.

Go on opening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it andit will highlight. In the right hand window there will be a very detaileddescription of that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etc These arevery detailed and are just what is needed for searching for drivers etc.


To get the PSU voltsyou need to select the Sensor button circled in yellow in the pic

See my pic for an example - the title for the settings may be different for your machine this is my Ivy Bridge board - Asus

No
When I bought the PC (2/3 years ago?)
Pass
To the best of my knowledge, yes.

I will try this asap. What is the benefit of using 4.20 over 5?

Thanks for your suggestion, I'll look into this after the retry with Memtest.

Righto but remember it is at least 8 passes unless you get a screen that looks like the one in my pic.

As far as I know they are both the same, V5.10 was just made to accommodate some of the newer chipsets, but a lot of people have had trouble with 5. If you use V5, when the test first starts it will tell you to push certain keys if you have a multi core CPU. Don't Push any keys, and the test will start in a few seconds. You will want to download either the ZIP file which contains an ISO filre that you have to burn to CD. You have to have an ISO burner to do it. Windows has an ISO burner that will work well Just double click the ISO and the Windows ISO Burner will open. If you want to run it from a USB Flash drive, download the Pre configured USB one. Put in a USB flash drive, after unzipping he file, open the program, tell it the drive letter of the USB Flash drive and click the Format check box and it will start and install it to the USB Flash drive. Whichever one you use, boot from it and the test will automatically start. Just let it run until you have done 8 complete passes at a minimum, more is better, or as Icit2LoL showed until you get an error. If you get an error, your ram has failed so there is no reason to continue. To stop the test, just push the Escape key.

Version 4.2, 27 passes (left it on whilst I was out for the day), no errors.

I was going to ask if simply replace my RAM would help. Somehow I doubt it.
