    That code is related to a faulty RAM stick in your Mac. You can find out which one (or both) is faulty by removing them and running the tests again.

    Have you noticed any problems on the machine prior to the test? If not it could be a false result....AHT sometimes isn't 100% reliable.

    Seems to be memory related.

    I'll get back soon to edit.

    Edit: Found two other threads.

    What you could try is just stck in one stick of memory in an unused slot, that is if non is taken and run the test again, do this with all your sticks until you find a bad one.

    i was worried because my mbp suddenly restarting and facing an error bla bla bla, nxt time i encounter it, ill take a photo of it.. i was thinking if the prob is in hard drive so i ran AHT, and that is the result. so RAMs might be the prob from a sudden restart? thanks for reply guys
