Slow "walltime" on MemTest86+ 4.0

  1. Greetings.

    I've recently run a memory test on my laptop using MemTest86+ 4.0. While the scan came back fine for the memory, something interesting happened. The "walltime" for the test was running at about 1/3 of real time, meaning that a scan that said it ran for 3 hours...really took about 9 or so.

    I've run MemTest on other machines and never had this happen. Since I was running this from a CD (pre-windows boot) does this mean that perhaps I have some sort of other hardware or low-level software issue? Why would the test run so slowly?

    Many thanks!
