    I suspect you have faulty ram.

    Run Memtes86+ as per the instructions HERE and see if that helps to identify the culprit.

    1. test your ram with memtest 86+ for at least 7 passes.
    2. test your power supply with a multimeter.
    3. check for bulging or leaking capacitors on the motherboard
