Hello,

I've suspected that I have a bad RAM chip for months, but TechTool Pro says everything is fine. I found out about Memtest and have just finished running it overnight. I ran the test from "Secure mode".

The report is below. Please tell me how to interpret this and identify the bad chip. There are 4 chips installed. Thanks.
