Bad hardware can be tricky.  Memory tests can only verify if something is
bad.  I don't care how many or how long something passed.  Even in the old
days of hardware memory testers, they still weren't 100%.

If you suspect something is bad with the hardware, you can swap with known
good parts.  Certain things will show up in dmesg/messages.

Otherwise, create a boot usb drive with the same packages on it.  If it
runs off of that, chances are it's not hardware.
