Default Microsoft memory diagnostic

I ran it, and i have failed tests for LRAND and Strider6. Is this the absolute gurantee that my RAM is bad? If so, this may be the root of my problem (ranodm reboots and games shutting down). Has anyone else used this program before? TIA

When I first ran Prime95 I receieved hardware failure detected. "Rounding was 0.5" should be 0.4" or less". I'll run memtest. I already put in a request to return the Geil 1gb ddr2 stick to newegg already.
