I just got some bad RAM replaced and Memtest86 says the new RAM is fine (just as with the old bad RAM), but the Windows Memory Diagnostics goes up to 44% and just stops (it's not frozen, since I can change settings). With my old bad RAM (one stick was good and one was bad) Windows Memory Diag would get up to 100% on the good RAM but stop at 22% on the bad RAM.
Does anyone know what the Windows Memory Diagnostics is doing differently from Memtest86?
I always thought Memtest86 was supposed to be the best memory test program, but it's not detecting my bad RAM. I'm hoping OCZ didn't replace my old bad RAM with new bad RAM...
And I know the Windows Memory Diag program really was detecting bad RAM because my system would randomly lock up with the bad stick of RAM, but would run fine with the good one.
