Touch the unpainted part of the system and don't let go.
Now on the side of the modules you will see what looks like a lever.
Push the ever away from the module and then do the other side.
Try to remember how they come out as they need to go in the same way.
Once one stick is out then rerun the memtest with the one module. If it comes back good then you will need to remove the other module and put the module you first took out in it's place. Rerun the test.
Let me know what the results show.

Yes that will work. Make sure you have the bag with you when you do all this. Don't walk across the floor untl it is secure.
This is overkill in most instances but better safe then sorry at this point.

OK I need to get some sleep. Post your results for each stick and I will look at it in about 7 hours.
If the system does not boot then you won't be able to test the stick by themselves. At that point you may have to purchase all new memory.

Yes PSU can cause this but I'm still betting it's the memory.

Testing just the one stick?
If PSU fan is not turning when system is on then the PSU is overheating.
If it is running the PSU could still be faulty.
