The error means that some floating point instruction returned a bad result. Prime95 does a great job at testing your floating point unit, L1 and L2 caches, and main memory. If the "weakest" spot in your systeem is somewhere else, then another program might fail before prime95 does. That is why you should run a variety of test programs before calling your machine stable.
