Well...in my experience, Memtest generates errors...but it's up to the user/tester to figure out the source of the error.
The errors could indicate a problem with a module, a problem with both RAM modules together...a problem with the motherboard RAM clock, a problem with the RAM slots on the motherboard.
In my case, I was able to reduce the BIOS RAM clock speed and eliminate errors which were reflected with various PC3200 modules, but were not reflected when I mixed a PC2100 and PC3200 module (because the system runs at the speed of the slower module).
The fact that errors are produced doesn't necessarily point the way to mitigating/eliminating such. IMO, it's a process of elimination, trial-and-error attempts to see what might work.
