Usually, you only have one bad stick.

So, since you have 4 sticks, take out half of them out and test. If you still have a problem, take out one of the sticks still in the machine and swap with one you took out. Keep track of the one stick you took out! If the problem persists, it's on the one stick you didn't remove. If it disappears, it's on the one stick you took out.

If the problem doesn't appear at all with the first half of the RAM you left in, swap both sticks with the ones you did take out and repeat the above.

This is a relatively quick test and works well for non-intermittent failures.

Memtest86 can take quite a while to go through one pass. If you don't find the problem by swapping sticks out, then you can resort to Memtest86 and go catch up on a few episodes of whatever show you're behind on.
