If MemTest86+ (exactly THAT and none else ever mentioned by me, and of 
course the latest version) is not properly running on a PC, there is 
something fishy with that host, either something not "standard" or there 
is a problem with the memory/CPU...

The RAM "test" in most BIOS'es isn't a test for properly working RAM, it 
is merely a test if RAM is accessible/available at a certain memory 
location, and hence means absolutely nothing for the proper operation of 
a PC...
