Dump file analysis help needed

  1. I built this rig in January. It ran fine until June. I get a series of BSODs every week or so. After I set my RAM to specs (2.8v, 2-2-2-6), it got better, but didn't go away. For instance, in August, I got 3 on 8/6, 2 on 8/7, 1 on 8/10, 2 on 8/11 and 2 on 8/12.

    I have done the following:

    1) cleaned dust
    2) reseated RAM
    3) ran MEMTEST, HD check
    4) reistalled XP
    5) updated BIOS
    6) updated drivers

    MOBO and CPU temps are consistently in the 28-36 C range. Both fans are working.

    Overclocking didn't make any difference.

    I've attached the latest dump files. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    System:

    ASUS A8N-SLI Premium NVIDIA nForce4
    AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice 2.4GHz Socket 939
    600W PSU
    2x512 Crucial Balitix DDR400 PC3200 BL2KIT6464Z402 unbuffered non-ECC
    ATI Radeon X700Pro 256MB PCI Express x16
    WD Caviar 250GB SATA2 primary
    WD Caviar 320GB SATA2
    Lite-On DVD LH-20A1H
    Sony CDRW
    Windows XP Home SP2
    AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition

    SYMEVENT.SYS is impicated in three of the dumps. I think it's the only one left over, but make sure all Norton files are gone.

    I forgot NAV left all those files. I am deleting them now. Will let it run and see what happens. Thanks.

    I also downlaoded the newest SATA RAID driver. Now it appears that my system is stable. No BSODs in 4 days! Thank you very much.
