    All crashes caused by "ntoskrnl.exe." You should check your ram using Memtest.

    Memtest now run for 2.6 hours and on its 7th pass
    still no errors come up - How fool proof is Memtest ?

    or do I just buy another stick of ram ?

    On other bit of information is after each crash and the blue screen of death
    it does a "dump of physical memory" and comes up with the following fault
    "*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005,0xF68FD81D,0xF4291A20,0x00000000)

    does this indicate a memory problem ?
