i just built 50 machines and cloned them. i changed the standard windows logon screensaver with a "peanuts baseball game" screensaver (long story) and on 3 or so machines i get an error saying the peanuts screensaver has created an access violation in module xxxxxxxx etc. its only on a few machines. is this bad ram?

It is either a bad stick of memory, check it with memtest86, or it is the fact that the timings are too tight in which you could be getting a tRAS violation error.

Try both out and let me know what is happening. It could be something else but those are the first two off the top of my head.

Also try swapping modules from one of your other 47 computers...
