What are your other lines of though regarding possible issues?

Thanks for the help !
There are no fixed standard because there are people who find different things standard, we believe at least 8 completed passes is the minimum requirement, any less is not enough to determine that the memory is fine or faulty.

I have updated BIOS, Checked all drivers relating to the motherboard, Audio, lan etc etc and all up to date. Ran chkdsk and sfc/scannow

I will run another memtest tomorrow and aim to complete 8 passes or more.
