Windows 7: Bad RAM? Passes memtest

I've ran memtest on each individual stick for over 10passes each with no errors. One strange thing i noticed....

About 2 months ago, I left town, and left my PC off for about 3 or 4 days. When I got home and turned it on, I got repeated BSODs which were things like MEMORY MANAGEMENT and PFN LIST CORRUPT. But they eventually went away after a day or so.

I just got home today after being out of town for 5 days. What do ya know, same thing. Multiple BSODs. I will post my minidumps if someone would please analyze them.

Also I'm using the MSI mobo this time around, and before Windows booted the first time I powered it on, I got an error that read "RAM R/W test failed".

Also you could find more info on my other post: GTX260 Video Artifacting/BSODs

THanks in advance!
Straight forward. Memory.

Download memtestx86 and run for at least 5 passes

If you overclocking stop

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Well, I'm not overclocking.... also i ran memtest86(the bootable one burnt to a DVD) for 10 passes on each stick of RAM individually, with 0 errors. However at the time I did that, my PC had been mostly powered on for about a month. This RAM seems to be failing after trying a very cold boot(4 or 5 days off).

I'm wondering if it is also to blame for the rest of my problems.

Memtest Passes
Sorry for the basic question: When people suggest doing 5 passes in memtest, what exactly is 5 passes? Does that mean running memtest 5 times, each time until the pass figure reaches 100%?
