I think that you have given us only the half detail which is little difficult to provide you the solution for the same. You should provide the detail about the operating system that your are using so that i can find the solution for the problem of yours. I can give you the proper solution for your problem.

As per my knowledge you have to follow the below given command which will be helpful for you. Just go through the same and see whether it is working for you or not. Also let me know if any other error will appear on the same.
  • v Verbose
  • f Force text load
  • s Single user mode
  • x Safe mode

Yeah you are right about the Memtest. This is a nice tools which detect the problem related to the RAM of your computer. And if possible then it corrects the problem also.
