PC Freezes at random and weird error on Memtest86+

Got a PC here which will freeze at random, sometimes under load, sometimes at idle after a non-consistent period of time very time.

I ran Memtest86+ boot cd across which worked for 5 min and 9 sec then stopped saying "unexpected error - halting".

There isn't an error message as such given though.

Any thoughts people?

Not far from the truth actually.

Handed in my resignation at Harvey Norman to go and work at Clive Peters. Both HN and CP are retail computer chains. I worked as a the only technician at HN for $26000 a yeah roughly. CP are paying me $33000 (retainer) + commission + penalty rates + over time + "technicians compensation" although I do not know what the last one entails. My business is rolling along nicely. Registered the business name "Callout Computer Technicians". I thought it had a nice ring to it.

Because i'm still currently working in retail, the opportunity is there to build my client base which is what is the most important part at the moment.

On the note of wealth building, I've also found something useful to spend it on. I'm currently land shopping to build my first home on. So aside from working 90 hours a week, all my free time is occupied by searching for land, which in itself is a full time job.

How is everyone on here anyway, I dont get much of a chance to spot through as of late.
