Says no errors yet.. How long do I let it go and How do I know if something is wrong?

Also.. If I go to work for 6 hours and just let it run for all 6.. Is that a bad idea?

Ok, also, I'm addition to my " how do I tell if my ram is bad question " my ram slots 1-3, all say " 2048 mb ddr3- 1333 - mushkin 991585 ( 996585 ) " why do these have an extra set of numbers besides them ( the parentheses are the extra numbers ) but the other slots don't.

I don't know why you'd get the 991585 on one DIMM but not the other(s), but that's just Mushkin's model number.
And yes definitely let Memtest run for as long as possible. While you're at work, overnight, whatever. Let it run through a couple of full passes.
Also note that Memtest is not 100% reliable. I've had a bad DIMM before that passed Memtest but I would get stop errors all the time in Windows until I removed that DIMM.

It must be my "non-legit" windows..


That's highly, highly unlikely. Pirated versions of Windows don't give you random blue screens.

Perhaps. But then what in Gods name could it be?

3 passes, also you have to check one stick at a time. Memtest will not be able to tell you which DIMM is failing, if any are

Ok, good. I'm worried though.. Because if it isn't my ram.. Or my videocard or hardware that's causing random blue screens.. It must be my "non-legit" windows..
