  • This usually means there is a fault in your memory modules and the only way to correct it is to replace the offending memory.

    You can download a utility to test your memory @ http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2008.09.utilityspotlight.aspx?pr=blog

    If you search the internet for memtest you will get links to a few other memory testing programs you can download free.
