This is bad news for your computer, and *any* OS (including Windows).
Data written to these memory areas will get corrupted, and if these
are written to hard disk, you will get wrong data on the hard disk
If you do not know how to remove your memory modules, so as to test
them one by one, as compdoc suggested, you have to give your laptop to
Dell service, telling them the memtest86+ errors you got, so as to
isolate and remove the defective memory module (if possible), or
better replace it with a new one (if possible).
