Hi list,
I would like to thank everyone who answered to this thread. An
additional extra thank you to the kind list memeber who gave me
instructions on how to download and build an USB version of memtest86.

Needless to say that after identifying the failing memory module with
memtest86 we have not had a single failure on this machine.

Thank you all!
Mikael Bak
