I am no expert in this area. To understand the problem better, could you
tell me, if you are using anything like acpi and/or X? I would try the

1) Disable acpi etc., I think you can do this by entering acpi=off at the

2) Disable X and run memtest from command line.

Also what version of knoppix CD are you using?
