Re: Memory errors on new memory in new system
In the absence of an updated Debian install (it's wiser not to update a
digital audio workstation too often) I used another install of current
Ubuntu Quantal 64-bit, Memtest86+ v4.20 and instead running it from the
same Parted Magic live CD, I run it from the lastest Parted Magic 64-bit
Live CD, also Memtest 86+ v4.20.
Ubuntu's Memtest still claims that my RAM is broken, Parted Magic's
Memtest still claims that my RAM is ok. Intense RAM usage for more than
8 hours a day and never turning the computer of since several days and I
had not a single RAM issue. I don't had RAM issues for the last
So it's very likely that the RAM is ok ;).
Perhaps you should run Memtest86+ from
And even if this should fails too, it doesn't mean that RAM is broken.
OTOH if your RAM passes the test there's no guarantee that the RAM is
Memtest86+ can help to find a broken RAM, but it's not a secure test,
when there's no suspicion for new RAM.
