If the errors are random or if the system re-boots without any explanation, your processor might be overheating.  Pop the case cover off and make sure your cooling fan is running properly (when the fan starts to go it might stall from time to time)

I have already tried all the things that were listed in seebud's proposed file. They did not work.
The problem was hardware generated. It seems that the extra 8 MB of RAM I added did not work well with the 8 MB I already had.
I gave the computer to the place I bought the computer from and the changed all my simms to be of the same type. It works fine for now.

Did you have mixed EDO with Non-EDO?
I'd love to know for learnings sake.

I can't tell for sure if it was an EDO or NON-EDO mix. But can assume it was becasue the old simms were older than 2 years. Since nost of the new simms sold today are EDO I guess that was the problam. The lab did not tell me.
