Why are you running these tests? One only normally runs these tests if you are having problems with your PC.

If you are having problems, it would be better to say so here, then you will probably get help to sort out your problem(s).

Have you tried running with just the one good stick? If everything runs ok with that one stick, then yes, I would say one duff stick - replace it and all will probably be ok. I have had similar happen to me - with a new stick no less!

OK - if all turns out well, and no reason for it not to, don't forget to Green-tick this thread Resolved.
