    As this has started after changing the motherboard, the first thing to do is to check the RAM. Memtest86+.

    Unfortunately, one error is one too many, when a program references that part of the memory it's going to crash. Did you test them one stick at a time?

    i just checked one of the sticks and then i replaced them with
    my other pc's 2 X 256mb ddr sticks (512)
    and after a while i got a 0X0000000X4E PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

    0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

    Test the 2x512s together and then one at a time, if all three give errors then the RAM is the problem. It's either not compatible with the mobo or the timings or voltage aren't set right. Do they have a brand and model number or a sticker with the timings on e.g. It'll probably be the same story with the 2x256s.
