Windows 7: Random Reboot without BSOD, Memtest Fails Hammer Test

Random Reboot without BSOD, Memtest Fails Hammer Test

EDIT: Here's the Memtest86.log file: Memtest86.log - Pastebin.com

I have been having a few issues with my custom build recently. I have noticed my computer randomly rebooting after being idle for a while, but it hardly ever does this during use (still hasn't). It also hangs a little more frequently. It never used to do this before, but I suspect memory faults?

I don't remember if this started happening before or after I enabled XMP in my BIOS.

What should I be looking at? I disabled XMP but the rebooting issue and memtest failures persist.

Thank you for any help you can offer. It's much appreciated!

Here is the memtest86 report (if I need to post something else, let me know):

Upon any failures with memory you have either bad memory or a bad memory controller.

You can find out which one it might be by using the link below:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Also of help, below is something one of our members Arc posted a while ago.

Follow the procedure in Part 3 of this tutorial: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

It will help determine which module or slot is bad. The bad module(s) will have to be replaced. There is no way to repair memory errors. Your model carries a lifetime warranty so other than the inconvenience, it shouldn't be too painful.

So I ran the tests, and something interesting happens. When I ran the tests initially, it always failed exactly once in the same way in test 13, the hammer test, with a single 1 bit error. When I tested the sticks one at a time, in each slot, they worked perfectly. The only way to reproduce the error is by testing them both simultaneously.

Are you using MemTest86+ or just MemTest86? There's a big difference.

Memtest86-6.0.0.iso that I'm running off a bootable flash drive, extracted using Rufus if that means anything.

Strange. Here's what I see when I go to the download page.

Once more for the OP as you seem to have misread the links provided above, or not read them at all.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.
