    Most likely it is bad RAM. Run memtest to stress test the RAM.

    Probably caused by : memory_corruption

    Hi CPC2004,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Will changing the RAM alone be a possible effective solution, since I have noticed it always crashes at a certain time in the night. Maybe the AntiVirus I have (its liveupdate feature) causes the problem. I have Symantec Antivirus 8.x and tried to install 9.x - got an error and could not install.

    Is this a possibility or rather I should just change the RAM?

    Thanks
