Then I would have to assume there is a hardware problem that memtest86 didn't 
exercise.  But without being there, with schematics and my scope, I'm afraid 
I can't be any more help.  My scope is probably too slow anyway, its just the 
usual dual trace 100mhz half computerized Hitachi, good to 200 mhz but of 
course way out of calibration by then.
