BSOD after clean install and application errors in system log

  1. Hi,
    I've been having problem with my pc, Symptoms have been rebooting automatically for no apparent reason and Firefox crashing everytime i start it. This was happening for about a month until i couldn't reboot my pc.
    So I did a clean install of windows XP and now i'm getting the following errors in the event viewer when using windows update through ie

    faulting application svchost.exe version 5.1.2600.2180 faulting module mxsml3.dll version 8.50.2162.0 fault address 0x00008457

    faulting application iexplorer.exe version 6.0.2900.2180 mshtml.dll version 6.0.2900.2180 fault address 0x00129a66

    fault bucket 134652368

    Also my PC still reboots for no apparent reason.

    When i run sfc /scannow I get the BSOF referring to either of the following files

    I suspect it was caused by the harddisk, but running speedfan and doing chkdsk it seems alright.

    I've attached some minidumps and hoping someone could evaluate them for me and tell me what is wrong with my pc.
    I've have the following
    p4 northbridge 2.4ghz
    ecs vmm2 motherboard
    2gig PC2100 ddr ram
    DVD combo drive
    NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti200
    2 80GB IDE HDD
    430watt power supply

    thanks in advance

    I think this is a motherboard problem - give it a visual inspection and check all the capacitors to make sure none of them have bulged out of shape on the top.
    The reason for the instant (maybe wrong!) diagnosis is I have just binned an ECS board from a system with similar problems for this reason.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Two of your minidumps crash with MEMORY_CORRUPTION_ONE_BIT. This indicates faulty ram as the culprit.

    Test your ram as per the instructions in this thread HERE.

    CHKIMG_EXTENSION: !chkimg -lo 50 -d !sr
    f7469a04 - sr!_SEH_prolog+28

    1 error : !sr (f7469a04)

    MODULE_NAME: memory_corruption
