I have been using the same memory in the machine since 2004. I ran memtest for one complete test cycle and didn't get any error reports. I know I should let it run longer, but I'm trying a couple of other tests...

1. Removed a Belkin OmniView PRO2 4-Port KVM switch (F1DA104T)
2. Didn't start my samba server

and I'm having better luck.  I'll report back either way.

Thanks for the suggestion,
Pete
