other errors to. That was just the most popular. And stuff crashes a lot. The memory was pretty much brand new, if I got bad memory ima be pissed. How do you know?

You also might want to test the sticks one by one, or in pairs if required by your board. If a stick fails, try in different slots. You could have a bad ram slot on the board or might not be seated correctly.

"Page fault in non-paged area" could be the result of a module going bad, or more likely the supply voltage is too low. Ensure the modules used are in compliance with what is recommended. Your mobo uses a memory controller that is embedded in the CPU die.. and requires a lower voltage source (under 2 volts). If the level is not proper for the memory modules, paging will fault. The BIOS should have a provision to increase the memory control voltage a bit. But be careful, as too high can cause damage to the CPU as well as memory!

have you checked the board for bad capacitors... bulging, or oozing?
