Sounds like you may have a memory timing problem or the voltage for your
memory hasn't been detected properly by the BIOS.. I had similar
problems, where running memtest86+ V1.65, it would hard lock during the
test (even just a couple of minutes through the test.). Getting the
system to respond to BIOS setup, I managed to manually setup the memory
timings, and voltage, and the system ran through memtest86+ fine.. (Two
hours and not one error or lockup)
It's worth checking out. I have no idea what mother board your system
has, so I only can take a guess what the problem might be..
