Thanks.  That's what was wrong with it.  While I was waiting for an answer, i did my own research, i found out my cpu was overheating and causing it to reset or make it unstable and give errors like the one i posted.  Now i made a mod for my computer that blows air over the motherboard and its working perfectly! ;)  Evedently when it overheated it made the system unstable and maybe caused it to not function correctly when writing to the ram?  Either way, its fixed now. Thanks
