Performing a memory test with Memtest086 v3.2 but the test halted after 42 minutes. It produces strings of numbers /characters with the following heading: "Unxpected Interrupt - Halting"

What does it indicate?

Could it be faulty RAM??

:waughh:

Just kidding.

Is there more than one module in the PC? if so, remove one, test them individually. Narrow it down.

I'd expect that there was an "unexpected interrupt". Memtest should know about memory problems.

Disconnect phone lines, network connections, etc, so the outside world can't try to get the computer's attention.

But if you get 42 minutes your memory is "probably" OK.
