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.
