RAM problems in my laptop

Since yesterday, I am encountering some strange issues with my laptop. My desktop would go unresponsive all of a sudden. Nothing works after that and I have to force reboot using the power switch. I am seeing this problem with both Windows and Linux. I was almost sure that there was some RAM problems by then. Later I ran memtest86+ to find out the issue. The outcomes are strange. Sometimes, it is not able to detect any problems even after an hour's run. But some times it complains that about a lot of failed operations just within a few seconds of the start. What the heck is happening with the RAM? I have to call HCL guys today!
