Yes, but the long answer in the faq points you to a site which even doubts
the validity of memtest results:

| However, when "memtest86" tells you that your RAM is ok, you might be

Aside from that there could be other hardware issues:

Do you overclock? Is the CPU properly cooled? Proper IDE cables?

You could also download prime95 from,
run the torture test for several hours (afaik 24) and see if you get any
