Bug Description

Binary package hint: memtest86+

In both Livecds Memtest doesn't work well.
After the 20% of the 2nd test I see errors, but if I download the latest memtest86+ livecd it says the ram is OK.

Hardware: 4gb ram, mobo Asus p5Q

Thank you for helping to improve Ubuntu. This is already a known issue on the Intrepid alphas (see LP# 246412), but I am unable to reproduce with the Hardy 8.04.1 alternate and live cd disc for either the amd64 or i386 versions. Can you verify that the 8.04.1 disc you burned is good?

@Steve Beattie: yes I checked it.
In memtest 1.7 of haedy 8.04.1 I don't get errors too, but the 2nd test doesn't reach the end.
At 21% it skip to the 3rd test
