From my own experience, I can think of a few possible reasons. Others
will probably find more.
There's a possibility that PE is written wrong; I doubt that in this
The other possibilities revolve around the RAM or memory controller;
either could be bad.
The error message says that one instriction is telling he OS to find
data of some sort at another location; for some reason, the OS is not
finding that data. It's either not there, or the RAM is bad.
There are many free RAM checking utilities available; a Google search
on shareware will find many shareware sites. Pick oe that looks good
If the RAM checks out OK, well, there may be another problem like the
memory controller, and, if so, you'll be getting other similar
problems eventually, but with a Gig of RAM, maybe not many.
Or, you may have a conflict with other apps or processes
(CTRL+ALT+DEL, then the Processes tab to see what's running); one or
more may be conflicting.
