Page_Fault_in_non_Page_area

I´ve installed WinNt 4.0 Server on one of my Computers. The installation-process was going o.k., but - if I do some operations like open Windows or so, WinNT hangs up with this error-message:
Page_Fault_in_non_Page_area
What´s going wrong??
I´m not able to install SP3, the system hangs up, before
installation is complete......

It sounds like a hardware problem.  You should take the following steps:

1.  Set the BIOS to defaults, slowest possible.
2.  If that doesn't work, remove ALL hardware from machine except
    the video and IO cards.  Get rid of sound cards, modems, ISDN
    cards, etc.  If you have a SCSI hard drive, try replacing it
    with an IDE drive at least on a temporary basis.
3.  If the above works, progressively re-install the hardware
    until you find the problem.  If not,
4.  Try installing on a different machine with same video card
    and then moving the hard drive.  If this works, you have a
    hardware problem.  Note that the 'different' machine must     have the same specification of video and IO ports.
